Night Tongue Lyrics

The Flood 

There are bars 
Outside the gate 
To keep me far from reach 
I run away 
Like a thief 
In deep water 
Caught uncovered 
Held down by the clasp 
I forget my name 
Inside 
Dark light 
I’m breaking 
I’m waking up again 

In the dark 
I am undone 
To feed you with my fever 
I become 
Like the flood 
Taken over 
Lost in time 
Pulled out by the shore 
I forget my name 
Inside 
Dark light 
I’m breaking 
I’m waking up again 

Alive 
I garner the fields of her flight 
All through the night 
Take me underground 
Take me underground 
All the lights go out 
 

On the flood 
On the dark light 
On the shore 
In the flight of the call 

On the flood 
On the shore 
You are light 
And I fall

Bluebood 

Was it something they knew 
Or something they saw 
That drew them together 
That let it unfurl 

Outside 
In time 

All of the secrets 
Revealed by a sign  

[* I am the lioness under your bed  
Choking and gagging and swallowing gems  
Held in the dark I am bound and victorious  
Here in your arms of blue blood  
I am awake  
Under the skin  

You carry me down through the caverns and valleys  
You tear me apart and we’ll never be lonely again  
Under the skin]

We climbed up the side 
Thrust our hands in the dirt 
Carved pieces of mountain 
Revealed its heart 

Outside 
In time 

All of the emptiness 
Held in our hands 

Dust on the road 
Smog in the town 
Lovers together 
Blood in its flow 

Outside 
All time 

All of their secrets 
Held in our hands 

In the bend of the arm 
In the wink of the eye 
The wolf and the raven 
The heart of the night 

All time 
All mine 

I dreamt of the furnace 
And slept like a lamb 

[*I am the fire that burns in your veins  
Reborn by the light in the violence of pain  
Taken apart I am bound and victorious  
Here in your arms of blue blood  
I am awake  
Under the skin  

You carry me down through the forest of violets  
You tear me apart and we’ll never be lonely again  
Under the skin]

Tongue 

Cut from the sun 
I tongue the sorrow 
The thorns that burrow 
Birthed from our blood 
We spawn the swallows 
The dawn that follows 
Is calling 
I’m calling 
No more sorrow 
I come undone 
Tongue the collar 
Maya’s arrow 
Dissolves 

[*Red was the heart was the flower  
Forever ours in its bite  
White was the flame was the hour  
Forever dancing inside]

Born from the One 
The holy marrow 
Devouring hallowed 
Forged in the sun 
The golden bellows 
The burning shackles 
That hold me 
Unfold me 
No more sorrow 
Forms come undone
You hold the dagger 
Shatter the glamour 
In light 

[*Red was the heart was the flower  
Forever ours in its bite  
White was the flame was the hour  
Forever dancing inside]

And the cut is open always 
And the knife is slicing through 
And the blood is forming merging 
And the walls dissolve 

And our palms are touching open 
And the blood is pouring through 
And the night is watching 
As the river of me is you too 

No sorrow 
And our song is one 
No sorrow 

[*Red was the heart was the flower 
Forever ours in its bite 
White was the flame was the hour 
Forever dancing inside

Now is the season of song 
In rapture of flesh we become 
Blessed by the wounds of our love 
Forever bound we are one]

Swarm  

A word a mirror  
A cloud of dust  
A phrase a labyrinth  
The minotaur its heart  
Each thread I speak  
Makes a tapestry  
Or makes a net  
Weaves a web of fallacies  

But you  
Elusive beauty  
You saw into me  
Into the dark  
And how  
Could I ignore you?  
I should forget you  
But there you are  

My lips the music and the muse  
My tongue the dancer  
The tarantella and the trance  
Your ear a boat  
Adrift the sea  
I hold the current  
My Poseidon breath  
Your elegy  

But you  
Elusive Beauty  
You saw into me  
Into the dark  
And how  
Could I ignore you  
I should forget you  
But there you are  

And now the smoke begins to clear  
The image sharpens  
The shadows disappear  
I pluck a razor from the air  
The x defined  
I open you up  
I feast  

And you  
Elusive beauty  
You came into me  
Into the dark  
And now  
I won’t forget you  
Forever with you  
Never to part

The Trees 

The night is caught 
In frozen space 
The clouds are gone 
Without a trace 
Deep in the woods 
The air is dark 
It holds me in 
Its stark embrace 

I long for you 
My heart so true 
Lost in this dream 
Of love so true 

I’m falling through 
The darkest dream 
Now love has brought 
Me to my knees 

I long for you 
My heart so true 
Lost in this dream 
Of love so true 

I long for you

Drift 

From the corner of a waking eye 
A glimpse of treasure caught 
As darkness comes and lights the way 
Silence bends the thought 

Lover 
I heard you calling out to me 
Heavy 
Through the fog I couldn’t see 

In a casket made of blackened stone 
At the bottom of the sea 
Its keeper holds an hourglass 
Our flesh and blood its key 

Drifting 
Don’t drift away in silence 
Holding 
Tightly to the razor wire 

All the beauty all the pain 
Ours forever more 
The river running blue and gold 
The ecstasy of all 

Hold me 
Hold me in your arms 
Help me 
Help me from this agony 
Slay me 
Slay me with your subtle knife 
Holy 
In death we’ll have it all
