the second single from our upcoming album "My Autumn Blue" due out October 15, 2021


a cold sun, silver lined
floating like an old religious poltergeist
divvy up the holy wine
and sing me back the reason that i chose this life

been dozing off to screens at night
dopamine and feelings that are traumatized
jolts of thought and streaming light
a deep mirage of golden gods encoding time

as we free fall in love at the pity party
and i default to numb
a thousand heavens burn
oh mother
a kamikaze mirth

fertile love yearns a crown
the early bird's inertia is the dirt in ground
curtains up, i'm nervous now
overwhelmed by dirty verbs and word of mouth

as we free fall in love at the pity party
and i default to drunk
a thousand heavens burn
no colors
i drown to quench the thirst
