like mute companions lyrics – man-eating tree

dismantled our will
once brave and firm
we took it apart
like summertime sleep
we fooled it away

dismantled our speech
once clear and so true
levelled it to the ground
as if the st a had come
claim its due

the promise
of what would happen today
with a promise
of what what we would have
in the world to follow

it’s the wait you compare all wait
when days like mute companions
deliver willing herds
into the pale lavender blue
the wait you compare all wait against
on days like mute companions
when all who will find you
will do what they must
to get from end to an end
of their shameful days
