lyrics

Hide me in the mountain-side
Deep in the living rock
Push, push, push me far down, down, down
Bury me down, down, down, down

I will feel the life all around me
Breath of the deep dark warmth
Gigantic heart beats slow
Speaks to me soft now
Down now
Down

What did he say to me?
What did you say to me?
"Shut up and wait
Be quiet and wait
All will reveal in time
All that's concealed, in time
So shut up and wait
Be quiet and wait."
But you can't wait.

Hide me deep from all our shame
We keep tying that knot
Love/lynch
Married in sin since we opened our eyes
First breath, last breath

"Shut up and wait, man
Shut up and wait, child
You don't deserve the light
Shining down day and night
But all will be healed in time
Your brothers will walk the line
Just shut up and wait
Be quiet and wait."
But I can't wait

Close those red eyes

about

Isaac Marion Seattle, Washington

I am mostly a writer (Warm Bodies) but sometimes I do music. All the music here is very old and some of it is embarrassing. I will make new sounds soon.
