animal crackers (let it dry)

lyrics

high up
on the ice
they played my
record like
i believed in their
god.

i was once
a child too
before it
burned my
thin fins.

speak their names
as they shake the devils
from my unresisting mouth.
(my open mouth)

next time they
greet the grand chasm
let it be my open eyes
(my open eyes)

built
a great storm
made my face
a holy
spectre

but
oh my blood
it became
the language
of forever.
