Tall column of pulsebeatson the unmoving axis of timethe sun dresses and undresses youThe day shakes loose from your bodyand is lost in your nightThe night shakes loose from your dayand is lost in your bodyYou are never the sameyou have always just arrivedyou have been here since the beginning

Tall column of pulsebeats
on the unmoving axis of time
the sun dresses and undresses you
The day shakes loose from your body
and is lost in your night

The night shakes loose from your day
and is lost in your body
You are never the same
you have always just arrived
you have been here since the beginning
