lyrics

Whales opened up and swallowed our bones
They spit the flesh and sang their haunted songs!
Take the bucket take the blood, take it to the walls
Our daughters will die and your sons, they will fall!

We're yawning or we're mourning, we're folding our bones
Cancer! Oh my! Gemini! Cancer! Oh my! Gemini!
Busy streets, taxi! Taxi! Busy phones
Whales swallowed up our bones, they spit the flesh and ate the bones

Swimming smooth beneath the snow
Draw a little fire out

Dusk is dawning, locusts swarming, burning the grain
Cancer! Pisces! Gemini! Cancer! Chemo! Then we die!
Angels, demons, lambs and lions eating sugarcane
Snakes and apples, waging battles, the quick and the slain

Swimming smooth beneath the snow
Draw a little fire out

When you buried your brother did the flowers feel familiar?
Come down from that tree, beat your hands against the floor
When you rushed to the shore had the sand become snow
The world is a mother, the world is a womb

Draw a little fire, come one, draw it out!

Swimming smooth beneath the snow
Draw a little fire out
