lyrics

(body sleeper)

and your body turns to the moon
like any body would do
you feel it come alive
you can feel the folds open up
like any body in bloom
and the turning is arrived

and you take all your lust and prayer
and you put all your energy there
and you give it rest and care
and you hold the feeling of a body beating
and the chemical lives in you
in the physical form you grew
and your body turns to the moon
in the night you can feel it come alive!

(body sleeper)

and your grief may never end
but you're held in the body of a friend
you can feel it ruminate
and the body will buckle under pain
but the body will not be ashamed
and the turning is awakened

and the sleeper is a traveler
and the road is an unraveler

and the chemical loves unfold
and the physical form grows old
and you dream a meridian
where the moon comes up and you come alive

(body sleeper)

and you carry a plot in your bones
and the bed is a road
to a lonely place
and I remember my ache as a boy
and the limits of play
and the weight of a name

and I take all my lust and prayer
and I put all my energy there
and I give it rest and care
and I hold the feeling of a body beating
and the chemical lives in you
in the physical form you grew
and our body turns to the moon
in the night you can feel it come alive!

and the sleeper is a traveler
and the road is an unraveler

(body sleeper)

when the moon comes up and you come alive

(body sleeper)
