lyrics

They quarrel in tuktuks
Through Sri Lankan streets
They see sticky mud on Buddhist gowns
And move through these towns
There are stomach bugs woven rugs
While wipers fight torrential rain
No hint of refrain
Now her skirt is ripped
She can’t believe
they still take these trips
Much harder now
Than when they were young

She thinks
So once more
We’re back again
That unfamiliar feeling
So familiar

To drift awake
In a land
Where all
You bring
Slips away
from steady hands

Takes him back to Istanbul
So long ago
when they were new on honeymoon
They sailed down the coast
Jumped from dizzy cliffs
Ate the fruit
From painted window hotel rooms
Carved into caves
They were beautiful
Unaware
Of any kind of danger
That could stand in their way

He says
We should change
With each moment
That bubbles up
And disappears
And bubbles up
And disappears

To drift awake
In a land
Where all
You bring
Slips away
from steady hands

To drift awake
In a land
Where all
You bring
Slips away
From steady hands

What if they're just constructs?
If it comes
From within?
Our thoughts may seem like rocks
But a river runs everything thin
