Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

In which regret gets a boner


i didn't learn to read the tea leaves
i didn't learn to sanitize
i didn't want nobody to deter me
i didn't want to grammarize

i just wanted to
hold you naked
i just wanted to
kiss your lips
i just wanted 
to trace my lineage
along the borders
of your hips
take you in sips
i just wanted 
my skin in yours

i didn't sing to you in denver
we didn't dance in timbuktu
if i could just have one more hour
i'm sure that i could break on through
break on through

i just wanted
to pulse like krishna
i just wanted
to gain your altar
i wouldn't falter
i would hold on
and you could let it go
when your waves crashed
i would surrender
just like a knave
i am yours

i didn't make you any dinner
i didn't fill your desire
i couldn't swear but
i am no winner
i was always just a guy
always just a guy

i didn't learn to read the tea leaves
i didn't learn to sanitize
i didn't want nobody to deter me
i didn't want to grammarize

i just wanted to
hold you naked
i just wanted to
kiss your lips
i just wanted 
to trace my lineage
along the borders
of your hips
take you in sips
i just wanted 
my skin in yours
