lyrics

The Black Hive
We lie down, live our lives in the black hive.
Just extremes, no more memory
No more view from here
A sticky sensation
Where we once
Trusted our wings
I’ll slide down you
When you live inside the black hive
You won’t fly away
You’re safe within the black hive
An afternoon of no shadow
Just another kind of mortal
Strange as it may seem
I don’t wish to penetrate the black hive
Whispering, it’s whispering
Like bees in blindfolds
The black hive shines
In the heat of retreat
Afternoon of no sweltering shadow
You don’t need to lock the doors
But you will
You don’t need to pull the blinds down
But you do whispering shadow
Narcissist shadow
Sibling shadow
The nectar infects you
The nectar infests you
And poisons you both
9199
9199
You’ll never agree to the sunlight
As you return to the black hive
The comb is ecstatic
You return to the black hive
You’ll never agree to the sunlight
But you don’t have a choice
Like bees in blindfolds
Sunk in the black hive
And I’ll never let you go
These seasons in the black hive
And you won’t walk away
Mine until you’re not mine
Loving seasons in the black hive
The maze in the comb
Delivered nightly
The sweetness in the comb
Night all day
Silk ribbons in the black hive
Whisper nightly
Delivered
Breathing in the black hive
It’s made for us to live there
