lyrics

7x7
look skyward recognize that size
your eyes’ regrets have yet to end our compromise
elsewhere on cold stairs in disrepair
i shave my hair in response to your blank stare
a ditch-dog tethered to a wounded deer
dear G-d this personal storm lasted our longest year
i called your father’s toupee a rococo hoax
with fierce dispassion you reply this is no time for jokes
the music ceased
an empty feast
one note at least
fore your soul’s increased
soliciting heaven seven by seven
the repetition it involves raises a doubt it never solves
soliciting heaven seven by seven
you know i can’t absolve you what would that resolve
soliciting heaven seven by seven
did Icarus commit suicide thinking that the sun was on his side
soliciting heaven seven by seven
to this earth are we bound and tied from falling upward to the sky
1st time i dreamed it’s so pretentious
i want to say but don’t know how to prevent this
you took to flight i couldn’t follow
with hollow bones swallowing air dancing with swallows
i was deluded i felt betrayed
you couldn’t refute it you flew away increasingly dismayed
the sun will burn the water drown
crowning achievements won’t save you now as you fall down
the music ceased
an empty feast
one note at least
fore your soul’s increased
soliciting heaven seven by seven
the repetition it involves raises a doubt it never solves
soliciting heaven seven by seven
you know i can’t absolve you what would that resolve
soliciting heaven seven by seven
did Icarus commit suicide thinking that the sun was on his side
soliciting heaven seven by seven
to this earth are we bound and tied from falling upward to the sky
just to be near you i need to be near you
