lyrics

it’s a staff that supports me when i’m broken down
a salve that will cool me when i’m all burned out
a key that opens up a silence secreted away

sing to me sing for me sing into the black
where the echos in the crevices are coiled for attack
a chaotic choral overload

play for me play and ply the talents that i lack
patterns that i imitate i feel like such a hack
fingers that won’t walk this road

write to me write away and maybe i’ll write back
words on pages queue until they grow into a stack
come on help me break the code
a major minor natural holiday
