lyrics

NATIVES:

we could be the equal parts
creation speaks a sacred truth
that each one is made from two

as the dusk opens an infinite mouth
to let the stars come pouring out
a quiet anoints the air
barefoot walking through the smoke of incense
paradise dripping from your hair
my fingers catch in a single snare

your image like mist in my mind
skin like gold
spread across water
in your palms
you hold the dawn
and morning’s thirst demands
that i take a drink from both your hands

the flowers in our skull bloom slow
and I wonder what becomes
but now i see
what we owe the serpent and the tree
in the garden we became more than beasts

will we age together,
at the edge of night?
in the slow heat
where each limb awakes
sweeter than honey what the body gives

the flowers in our skull bloom slow
and I wonder what becomes
but now i see
what we owe the serpent and the tree
in the garden we became more than beasts

one day the love that you gave
will crown the children that you shape



don't you know the universe grows
with you
