lyrics

this twinkle speculates
whether the organ is worthy
or if the hourglass is more
lest it musters a makeshift future

the hourglass stands tall
sustained by sand like a mountain
or withered slowly like a shore
shepherd the ocean a little closer

tectonic future calls
bringing our feet to Victoria
with nothing but a protocol
to feed the dying population

hypothetically we’d build a home in this city
theoretically it’d vanish in a year
hypothetically we’d have the sea all to ourselves
theoretically you’d be the perfect company

our bodies congregate
rummaging through every layer
through every unseen earthly fate
we’re only in a makeshift future

i’d like a cradle song
would you be so kind to offer
this twinkle will not last so long
sound don’t travel below water

hypothetically we’d build a home in this city
theoretically it’d vanish in a year
hypothetically we’d have the sea all to ourselves
theoretically you’d be the perfect company
