lyrics

The joints of our lungs stuck to tongue and to teeth
sunk in honey and sugar dissolve and release
trudge through mud to the couch there's the tv remote
flip through the channels just to hear my blood clot
and that's not the worst, sickening verses, a swamp-laden hearse
a breezeless day, a sheet-sweat night now i rest just to feel my legs snap

the scorch of the sun, the heat of being alive, molasses, the sun the sun the sun
turn on the air and waste away
wires like tendons, muscles like gum, gum in my nose and gum in my throat
sugar to block the air that feeds me like ropes to the neck like my back that slouches in death, in life all day

the sweat stings our eyes

the couch in my home, the sweat in my eyes, the ash on the floor, the blood in my cum, the dust in my throat, the ache in my feet, the leftover crumbs the dog in the sun

the sweat stains our eyes

flies swimming in candle wax

THE COUCH IN MY HOME THE SWEAT IN MY EYES THE ASH ON THE FLOOR THE BLOOD IN MY CUM THE DUST IN MY THROAT THE ACHE IN MY FEET THE LEFTOVER CRUMBS THE DOG IN THE SUN

DOG IN THE SUN DOG IN THE SUN I AM THE DOG IN THE SUN
