The Tides and Kindred Phenomena

by Anita Exira



This track's bananas.


bleary-eyed, weathered and worn
sunburned, somber and sore
the idle fray of existence decays
with the silhouettes we left
standing on the shore

from the ire we are to be reborn
when this calm that comes before the storm
gives way for a spell as the gale winds swell
and throw our bodies overboard

the shame of every wasted day
and the dust of our dreams
resonates through our weary hearts
through our hollow bones
and weighs heavily on our souls
