lyrics

I'll be your faithful elephants—
and won't drink from the captain's cup /
keeper wash halo / crimson / all we need is a little luck

hid in the flames / the silver spark sheen
melts the dust / and binds to the lung

belly-up and my child is starving
the money’s short and our time is up

blanket hid / a cold drum knocking / the needle burns and pulls you away /paradise is nowhere waiting / another trap with no escape

soaked in the flames / to stop the bleeding /
back to dust / and a burned out lung

belly-up and my child is starving
the money’s short and our time is up

justified my house starving /the money's short and our time is up
