lyrics

Step into the dark warmth
The slow burn
The strung out Saturdays

You were a politician
Sex magician
Love composition

You were a fighter
Pass the lighter
Grab a sandwich
Check your messages
Lay your self down

We live for the night
The drama, the fight
Still storms surrender
To the languid dawn
And our howl
Oh it just becomes a yawn

Post-protest dawn
It’s just litter on the lawn
Post-war bodies decompose
So we can have more soil to fight war on

And post-coitus nothing seems
To be nothing won or lost
Profit and loss are not in our vocabulary now
Slip from yin to yang
As we dance through the Dao

Come with me now!
