Sleeping Pills

Let me show you something that I found
Beautiful and ageless in the ground
Quiet seed asleep with furious dreams
Quiet as a lunar daybreak scream

Sadness into darkness into time
Sings an unborn child’s nursery rhyme
Patterned silhouette that bends and bows
Detonates electrostatic vows, static vows

I’m frightened of being alone on a hill
Sleeping in piles of sleeping pills
I was the motion and you were the still
Sleeping in piles of sleeping pills

Cloaked behind a fond apocalypse
Hidden by the love of an eclipse
Hoping to conceal unwoven souls
Remembering that even masks have holes

Riptide static kisses me awake
Could this be some terrible mistake?
Requiem beneath a flowerbed
Let me show you something else instead, else instead

I’m frightened of being alone on a hill
Sleeping in piles of sleeping pills
I was the motion and you were the still
Sleeping in piles of sleeping pills
