Turtles We Became

from by Cigarettes and Milk



From out and underneath the ground
You heard your heart eating the dirt
Like souls with pebbles in the grooves
I caught the one that made me think of you

And I'm rabid searching for some asking
Answers point themselves on the walls around me
It's my habit to bring out the bad kid
In this stone house we built and turtles we became

Can't stand it haven't even landed
Shade upon the dreams where love is abandoned
Wither in me feeling the rotgut
Turning stones for crows and gossip
Such bitter taste you went and
Left in me

Landfills where I left all my problems
Frigid eyes reflecting inner storms
It's this world I fell in love that I care for
It's the loss that I find hard to adore

The earth where I built my bridge from sticks
The songs we sang like lovers did
And I know this little place we can be alone
In this stone house we built and turtles we became
