about

Early taster of Skelocrats' third album, coming in 2019

lyrics

It's ringing in my ears again
The music in the wall
It spools and never ends

In a dream, I was once
Driven outside to a broad plateau
Where the sheep go

It's written in between the clouds
The sudden rebirth
Of this long strip of earth

For their soil and their bones
Taken inside underneath a hood
Donating blood

You'll never make me talk
As long as I'm breathing
As long as you're listening
My lips are sealed
You'll never make me talk
You'll never make me talk

He's covering my eyes again
And giving me the jist of his long weekend

With his kids on his boat
Rocking the sides in their fisherman's coats
Nicking my throat

You'll never make me talk
As long as I'm breathing
As long as you're listening
My lips are sealed
You'll never make me talk
You'll never make me talk

Even as your nails become debris
I become your world
Reach out and touch me
These are the hands that dug you a river
Where are your brothers?
Where are your sisters?
