White light

from Promise / Practice by Careful



white light, white heat, white town I never could escape from
good boy, good dog, good thing I kept a secret like an ember

I remember finding clothing in the woods
I remember telling stories like we didn't know them

come back, heal me, dig this body out

big rip, big sleep, big thoughts, small revenge of never knowing me
take time, take care, take me and do everything you talked about cause

I can feel it but only by puppeting this wooden skin
I can feel it but only like you're touching someone else's

so warm me, dimly; stop the bleeding out
come on, bright bird, unhinge your jaw; break me; swallow me whole and wake me, oh

tough guy, tough love, tough break we are right back where we started

When I'm with you it's like fingering a photograph
I can feel you composing a pithy little epitaph

so quit this dead place; leave me holding the skin
i can't live with keeping you in
