Live Music: "Staring At The Sun" by Wolf Like Me



Cross the street from your storefront cemetery
Hear me hailing from inside and realize
I am the conscience clear
In pain or ecstacy
We are all weaned my dear
Upon the same fatigue 

We're staring at the sun
Oh my own voice
Cannot save me now
Standing in the sea
It's just
One more breath
And then
I'll go down 

Your mouth is open wide
The lover is inside
And all the tumult's done
Collided with the sign
You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your body's over me 

Note the trees because the
Dirt is temporary
More to mine than fact, face,
Name, and monetary
Beat the skins and let the
Loose lips kiss you clean
Quietly pour out like light
Like light, like answering the sun 

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your mouth is open wide
You're trying hard to breath
The water's at your neck
There's lightning in your teeth
Your body's over me

Be what you will
And then throw down your life
Oh it's a damned fine game
And we can play all night

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
Your mouth is open wide
You're trying hard to breath
The water's at your neck
There's lightning in your teeth
Your body's over me 

You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
You're staring at the sun
You're standing in the sea
