lyrics

algae green lake water, still wet, thick sweat sticks to my skin, keeps it from sinking in, a barrier just like the mountains around me keep the land from the sun, too hot, too bright, at night don’t feel so weak but we all still go to sleep,
me cause i don’t feel at home when i am awake here.

and i’ll shake this water off me
and i’ll wipe this algae off me
and i’ll scrape away my skin
and sand down my bones till they’re smooth again

you’ve made me who i am.

a barrier also keeps me from you
where your water flows still so river blue
and your skin
(probably soft as its always been)
still tries to keep river out and bones in.

but river is far keener than lake
always waiting till its right, until skin is not so tight
before sneaking quickly in to make a home beneath your skin
and erode your bones until they begin to slowly crumble

and i’ll shake this water off me
and i’ll wipe this algae off me
and i’ll scrape away my skin
and sand down my bones till they’re smooth again

you’ve made me who i am again.
