lyrics

I've been wrong, I've been right
but I put up a fight
the whole of my life
never got it right.

We can lichen ourselves
we can hide under moss
until the day the waves crash over us

The edge arrives
aligned and undesigned
the edge of life
comes crowding up to meet us.

Out on the lawn
awake before dawn
we stretch and we yawn
don't know if we belong

In a monstrous calm
the marble cage lay
the day that you're born
is the day that we will say

The edge arrives
aligned and undesigned
the edge of life
comes crowding up to meet us.
