lyrics

Mountains of Malaga:
Try as I might,
climbing your thoughts
the scope of your bluffs leaves me stuck
at the foot

We're well at ease,
dappled in sunlight
Yet you're content to bathe in soot

If you would only turn toward the sun
Nothing to fear in the beams of my skin
Your words hollow me as you sink and run
If I consume them what shape will I be in
when you're back again

I see the light
catch the rose window
but your face remains in the gloom

Tirelessly care
for each tendril
of your hope so it might one day bloom

If you would only turn toward the sun
Nothing to fear in the beams of my skin
Your words hollow me as you sink and run
If I consume them what shape will I be in
when you're back again

Lone bird your strange flight is ending
Lose sight of the moon ,
Here the pieces of your mind need mending
Can't follow the tune ,
Can't hide it from you now that I'm
paralyzed
From the venom of your lies,
Sunk from the weight of your sighs
Just on the brink of breaking all ties,

For I know
each new sketch mark
baits your heavily charged eraser

This is my last
get well soon,
We both know you'll never quite replace her

If you would only turn toward the sun
Nothing to fear in the beams of my skin
Your words hollow me as you sink and run
If I consume them what shape will I be in
when you're back again
