re: listening

lyrics

trim the stems and watch it grow
but i didn't need the nectar
soil opens to a hole
and when it fills it's better

rain on my back, grab my spade
and step into the cabin
lay a bed of things i made
silent lightning flashing

when i woke i was rebuilt
but there was something missing
went to the garden on the hill
and there was someone listening

and i was calling
echo through the clearing
and trees were falling
but i wasn't hearing

but o fauna
was it something i said?
and is it wrong to
disappear in my head?
and i don't wanna
change my lobe location
so i am gonna
keep my situation

flowers growing
reaching over my head and under my skin
think i'm burning all these buildings,
all the flowers within

but as i stumble
my eardrum shatters
and there's a mumble
pointing out what matters

but o fauna
what did i hear you say?
and is it wrong to
try to find a new way?
and i don't wanna
lose sight of this sound
so i am gonna
keep my ear to the ground

i'm listening
now
i'm listening

flowers blooming
reaching up around my sockless ankles
think the nectar cleared my head out
taking off my raincoat

and in the clearing
there's a garden on the hill
and i am hearing
all the grass is standing still
