Daylight Doldrums

lyrics

lazy days lost in the cloud
razing? raising? Skies around
let the sky fall to the ground
and stop the wind your life unbound
knock mantle decorations down
turn each dress into a wedding gown

that is to say, must it be so?
Such is to say, so must it be?

Diamonds dresses dressing the windows
crying contest caressing tin does
do your tears compare to mine?
Do your scars still trace these lines?
What do you say to "what do you say?"
must it be so if you refuse to stay?

Try to find
the sky's lullaby
try to find
your sigh your sight

Creation, swing your chariot low
catch me from the ground, pick me up as you go
do not attempt to ask what it means
the world is a thing from which I'm being weened
that is to say, what is it to see?
Suffice it to say, must it so be?

Try to find
the sky's lullaby
try to find
your sigh your sight
once I lived in
my inside
Now I float in joyous voices

Labyrinthine sense, coattails high
absurd words are floating by
let the sky fall to the ground
and see the words, how they dip and dive straight down
floating on the mantle's breast, ooo aah
hot to the touch, this chariot's nest, ooo aah
that is to say, what is it to be?
What is it to be if it is such that we must be
Here?

Try to find
the sky lullaby
try to find
your sigh your sight
once I lived in
my inside
Now I float in joyous voices
Disembodied
poetics? Ethics?
Throw them to the wind,
though the air is transitory

I can see you with a gaze, hazey daisy
I can see you standing there
Waiting for me with a lazy starry stare
Seeing like the season's air

I can see you standing there
Waiting for me with lazy starry stare
Seeing like the seaon's air
I can see you with a gaze, hazey daisy

Ennet House Ohio

"A smooth, flowing fullness and a beat that makes it infectious and easy to listen to. It’s a sound so big it can’t quite be contained into individual songs, and each track seems to pour into the next as the album unfolds."
