lyrics

In season, in middle May,
I saw you bloom before you tore… away
or You hit, before you bloom you split,
inside out, inside all ripped away

You ripen, then you bruise,
your body a bag, a black plastic sack
oh spilling seven split stones, all unused

Mmm, partly red, partly blue.
Our colour remains, in a pool of blame
memories fade of your leg, not the red line that it drew

I’ve seen this all twelve times or more,
every hour
and it makes it easier for me, to see milk and not meat,
turn sour, a rare song

In season, in middle May
I saw you bloom before you tore away

You ripen, then you bruise,
your body a bag, a black plastic sack…
your body a bag, a black plastic sack
spilling seven split stones, all unused


I’ve seen this all twelve times or more,
every hour
reel-to-reel, milk to sour,
holding my own, raging and hard
only to see again if I’m real
And it makes it easier for me,
it makes it easier for me
every hour

Stars that shine in the road
broken by the rain,
ajar in the drain
To you it felt like Bethlehem again
And you follow
For you it seemed like Bethlehem again
You follow... again
In season, in middle May.
