loving isn't easy

lyrics

loving isn't easy with a body like these
bundled up as they be with the past
forged in the market of an anatomy
brokered in the ruptures of history

if we could be all-magical, omnipotent, untenable
and arrive at the liminal predicament of america
where all I see is blood

loving is a highwire, fckin bird of a beast
I don't know if I can fly there, fly free
I don't know the geography where you border my sleep
brokered in the ruptures of memory

where we seem all-magical, omnipotent, untenable
and arrive at the Nothing at the limit of america
where all I see is a mark on your brow
and I long for all the glory and the aching of impossibilities
or the quietude at the limit of america
where all I see is blood
