Nerves of the Nightmind

lyrics

All the vegetation in the settled world is stirring

I’m blurring into sun-burnt and heartbroken worrying

About how the day took such a long time to die

When it was reeking of women I once had on my side
But now that I’ve found another smell to believe in

I’m buzzing like hell just to hope I can breathe it

And resurrect the simplistic calm in some eyes

That are trying to find you or
 bury your nightmind

And it will take
 time

Oh your tongue and the twilight marina

When so young and brave and still dreaming

Getting to know you lash by dark lash

The rooms where you sleep in

The floors where you crash

And gas-stations are pleasantly blowing

Thunder rolls for dresses you’re wearing

On a body so unknowing

Of what that blowing’s for or preparing

And patience is never affording
When prettiness and sweetness are pouring

Out from you and

Onto me and
Dampness of sweat is the sweetest recording

And you can lay with your head on my body

The worlds of the night and disease try to rob me
All the vegetation in the settled world is stirring

But stillness and calmness are all that I’m hearing 
now

And it will take 
time
