i stood with a bell jar of belongings
rubber bands, cd's, decoding rings
a flood of blood, fireworks that sing
the every everything that had ever befriended me
you had painted your favorite perfume on
and Jim mouthed the words to come borrowed song
you can't fit your arms around all wrong
you can't fir your arms around all wrong
somewhere there's a half chamber of mud
trapped, in a heart of bone
heart of bone

the new language dots dashes double back slashes
voodoo numerology
the right lines are always unclear in spite of what you hear
they're trick questions invented invented to keep us appearing
at all of your stop lighted for sale signs
on a steep incline without brakes over Kellog Hill
into a basin of real estate stakes
real estate stakes
where it is your three thousand watts
three thousand watts keep us sane
in a heart of bone
we're in department stores (you conspire with me)
trapped in department stores (you conspire with me)
all that stakes and stones come chasing after
the poor worthless things
grounded into sediment at the local quarry
let's ground them down, down, down, down

running feet first into the headlights
where vendors search for pink slip highs
owning up the totaled cars
wrecking yards of discarded lives
i started building down
sanding down
building the surroundings away
a fistful of dust with a heart of bone
where others would insist that vision means everything
but the vision that exists
i wish you'd take this horizon down
painted up, written out, over filmed on bad stock
ground it down ground it down ground it down

ghost souls in a refinery retrieve sights and sounds
to prop up a facade of downtown
not too high, or they'll jump up up up up up up up
like ideas running out of air
a number up and then nowhere
engaged between the flesh and bone
stripping the meat and selling the chrome
heart of bone
heart of bone
heart of bone
