about

"Mythic Love" single cover image by Lin Zhipeng (aka.223).

lyrics

I showed up late and tired
To a party for a friend.
Parked my car on a street
Where trees grew along the fence.
Then I saw you in the brake lights,
Glowing in the limbs,
As you searched your purse for matches
Cigarette between your lips.

Inside, we sat entwined
And forgot everyone.
Our hands were fugitives in spotlights
When the dark bar lit up.
With the doors locked behind us
We scaled the fire escape
And fucked to a choir of
Screeching sunrise trains.

You said, “This feeling
It’s a dog in the mud.
It’s a blade on the tip up your tongue.
It’s a bottle smashed on the head of a TV stud.
Hearing my name when you cum,
It’s the Father ,the Holy Ghost, and The Son.
It’s a mythic kind of love.”

Mythic love

I know one day when I wake up,
There’ll be a hole in the sky.
And from that hole will come an angel
With bright, strobing eyes.
And in those eyes will flash the brake lights
You were bathed in that night
With the trees along street
And I’ll let loose the reigns of life.

I said, “This feeling,
It’s a web unspun.
It’s breaking the neck of a dove.
It’s a gun between your eyes when you’re talkin’ tough.
Hearing my name when you cum,
It’s the Father, the Holy Ghost, and The Son.
It’s a mythic kind of love.”
Mythic love
