no name day

from deplacer by Pete Jon

lyrics

I count the sorrows in your eyes
been growing and dying for a long time
and I believe you, what you cling to
you need a blessing you can recognize

day without a name
day without a name steeped in chamomile
pummeled in the rain
day without a name turning in a wheel

we come out bloody small and sick
we stay that way until we quit
and we're growing to nothing
we can't quite put our finger on it

day without a name
day without a name, feel it happening
demoniac, the shape
day without a name, waking from a dream

in fear and hunger you easily forget
you're always already there yet
and the vultures hang lower
you float downriver in a bassinet

day without a name
automatic emptiness is awakened
imaginary ache
the day without a name never will be taken

the feeling cuts me down to size
I need a blessing I can recognize
day without a name
day without a name, feel it immanent

I float downriver in a bassinet
I'm always already here yet
now you win the game
Day Without a Name
when you think of it
