lyrics

a four by six foot rectangle pushed up against the wall
is it a mattress or a magnet or a reminder of the hall
that i cannot reach
i cannot move
i will sprawl myself until it sinks into another room
is it a cocoon
is it a casket
the space between the two isn't enough to mask it

a sign or an excuse
or just something else to say
i know better than to find out the hard way
it rumbles, says remember,
you don't really have a choice but to
listen to someone else's voice

a four by six foot rectangle comes falling thru the floor
propelled by my breath until it washes ashore
east and west
in and out
sentient, inhales, as it floats on the route
until it snaps
back into place
four walls and a door and defined blank space

a sign or an excuse
or just something else to say
i know better than to find out the hard way
it rumbles, says remember,
you don't really have a choice but to
listen to someone else's voice

pit me and gut me and leave me here
pit me and gut me and leave me here

pit me and gut me and leave me here
lament regret and go
pit me and gut me and leave me here
lament regret and go

a four by six foot rectangle pushed up against the wall
alone alone on a wide wide sea
