Take another five pill purchase
Send it to your bones—into your bones
Ripping up the beautiful marrow
Sell it for loans—make up the loans

And send the backwash down the backstreets
And open hands with frowns over your eyelids
All you ever saw you realise is gone—is gone—is gone—is gone

Take the fourteen hundred people in blue
Their implied sorrows have an impact on you
Crying slowly, choking back all the sobs
Because they have a new version of their old god

And send the messenger to message all your enemies
And write the careful words down in your will
All you ever saw you realise is gone

And open up the skies to the whispering prophets
Open up the room to become independent
Open up a light
Open up a light
Open up the doors

And blow all the kisses to your right hand man
And know this is the last time he could ever give a damn
All you ever saw you realise—you realise—you realise—you realise is gone


from More is Less, released July 5, 2013
