i don’t need a girl
i just need a way to sleep at night
i don’t need a friend
just a reason to wake up again
i don’t need a lover to come from the stars
rip out my heart and land on a meteor

we’ll surround the earth
joyful asteroid is wandering
we can make it our home
spreading fumes and breathing acetone
no one needs another
world full of lies to hang in the sky
burn up before their eyes

standing on a fissure
glowing brighter
fracture’s getting deeper
hold together
clutching terra firma i didn’t ask for
face eternity
wish i’d held your hand

after all
the asteroid has to fall

maybe could have lasted a little longer
solar aura
did it look as radiant as ever going over?
did it look as glorious to everyone
drowning in the flood?
did it look as glorious as i could want
when pieces fell from above?


from Peace & Love, released September 12, 2017
