lyrics

baby bottle blue,
you've let your colors molt away
in a trade for love,
its never to be true.

while your sister's sleeping softly
on a balustrade of silence
ask your questions,
i doubt she'll answer you.

cloistered coffers cluttered
with a litany of lovers
just to cauterize
the craters punched in you.

will you wait?

for the fortune casting candy striper
talking tongues in children's cypher
idol babel biding by your bedside.

while broken bound and bludgeoned
with your heart preserved in traction
its just a fraction of,
the fortunes that you're due

while we're straddling the states
along the edges i can wait
for the fold to bring us in,
our hopes resolve.

will you wait?

for the fortune casting candy striper
talking tongues in children's cypher
idol babel biding by your bedside.

for a glimpse, a gasp,
between the misers
forging lovers into lifers.
manic masses moving through your insides.

but Mary your fatal flaw you see,
was you tried to love us all.
you set the seed to soil
and swore we would live forever.

darling, you'd never know
just how far these arms could row
for the glow
beyond the bay of slow surrender.

for a taste, a touch, a timid talking
a clearer course,
out towards the crossing.
clever conversation by the wayside.
