Landscape Of Skin And Single Rooms Lyrics (by Oyster Boy)
I was across the ocean, somewhere far away from you, and all had rotted on my island. In my bed and at night, I sought him whom my soul loved. I sought him, but I could not find him.
I keep a Bible in my bed, here on the pillow by my head. It’s how I know how to keep the devil from sleeping on my feet. Now for the bottle’s thoughtless grace––the number seven on its face. Can you call it a sin if it helps me reach my peace? Close your eyes and go to sleep.
I dream of a blind man crushing keys all night in his room alone! We were our father’s sons but I sold my eternal soul. I haven’t done a thing for you. I don’t deserve your gentle grace. I have done nothing to deserve your embrace.
Well is it fair how it turned out? Do you deserve what I have now? The easy life where the spoon is carried up to your mouth? I’ve done some things that would shame you, all for the tits and whiskey, too. But at the end of the night, you are soaring through my blood. They ask, “Are you having fun?”
No, I’m not having a good time. I don’t want to be part of your high life. It’s true––everything here is worthless. I am waiting for my king, for a world more perfect.
