lyrics

Well I am a dust mite with no bed to roam
And I might just die next time the wind comes to blow
It’s rocky and freezing and I’m all alone
Would you give up your hygiene to leave me my home?

And I am an ant so please step on my hill
And there’s so much of me so you’ll see me still
It’s fun but you don’t see how I’m left alone
Would you never change a thing to leave me my home?

Oh darling if I was a star you’d look up at me
And I would look back to you
We’d never change anything

So bring all your blankets cause heaven is high
And hold yourself sitting all on top of the sky
It’s cold and I know where clouds cannot climb
Would you bring all your breathing to pump and inflate all our lives?

Cause we’re all collected fibrous flesh
We’re flowing like juice through a perpetual nest
So bring yourself backwards where all is your home
Silver trickling stars where you’ve always been known

Fronted by Paul Conant and Sam LeBeau. ... more
