Raincoats

A million miles from shore

The waves come washing slow

Laid out and bare

Nowhere to turn back to

 

Unstained squares in the dull moonlight

The tap runs smooth and strong

Calls on cracks in bones unwhite

Stumbling on and on

A sickle moon lights up my true love’s face

Dancing in the dark

The mirror’s screaming a circus gait

Then light tears me apart

 

Where do you go, the ground gone between us

When you return you wear a new sleeve

 

One’s for the treason under my bed

Glass and silken stone

Then for the faces, one by one

All lined up in a row

Now cause I’ve drifted far from the pen

And now cause there’s no one home

I promised to pull you inside of this mess

Beneath the circling crows

 

Where do you go, the ground gone between us

When you return you wear a new sleeve

 

Footsteps flash through the cracks, claim the light

Don’t open the door 

The corridor’s folding back on the night

Don’t open the door 

They’re picking at locks and calling them out

Scratches and splinters

The trapdoor edges smooth all around

Don’t open the door
