lyrics

found an ice pond and broke in
I was looking for something
wound up half froze and bloated
only dredged out come spring

hauled myself out and spoke through stagnant water
again, I said
so soon I fall sick again
said it alone because everyone knows
it's necessary for the ill to stay away
but go on and ignore it, I might
it's happened before, and I really want to see you tonight

now a distant situation
told you it's not contagious
distracted by the shadow cast of your hand to your lips
wonder if you could see of this
you avert your gaze, I drift away

indoors between dry walls
red room's floor that recalls
of a mercury ocean
sudden nausea's return

again, I said
...
but try to ignore it, if I look a fright
it does happen so often, and I wanted to see you tonight
