lyrics

Obsession Stares Back
Obsession stares back
Says if you were my sister
You’d be my lover
Obsession stares back
Says you’ll be my brother
As well as a lover
Across rooms threading your mind
Pas t the people positioned
The dark wear and shadow showers
Obsession leaves a line
Like Theseus did
Shrinking cracks to the chambers
The memory palace
It’s all we have
Obsession in chambers
Most of the doors closed
Most of the sound stifled
Most of the light replaced with instruction
Madame Estuary
Monsieur le Tight Line
The rite time
Wound up so tight
You can see your reflection
The reflection is down
The double meaning expelled on the moving mirror
So be my sister
So be my lover
Talk like Jack and Julie
Play like Jack and Julie
In our cement garden
Obsession stares back
And kills the frost on the window again
Left for hours to talk into the blackness
No glimpse of light on the captive floor
As the obsession stares back
Sweet talk back
Words encrypted on festival walls
Read through filters and wet frames
And back to our chambers just like Jack and Julie
Obsession stares back
We’re not decadent
We just drink from the same glass
We’re not lovers
We’re just siblings who dream
We sing our cryptic narrative
And lie to the ones we sing to
We’re not lovers
We’re just Jack and Julie’s shadow
Shudder to think we shared a womb
Madame Estuary
Monsieur le Tight Rope Walker
Don’t let the rope slacken
Don’t fall in your cement garden
Where obsession stares back
Oh honey, and it stares so hard
That death stare gives life
To every wave your estuary
He’s downstairs breathing her in again!
He’s downstairs breathing her in again!
He’s downstairs breathing her in again!
