Minute By Minute Lyrics (by Oyster Boy)
Every night there’s a new kind of dream, visions bold and revolting that make me sweat in my sleep. Last night you were naked before me, laid out on a platform, a sacrifice for all to see. Every night there’s some new sin, some new smell crawling over my skin. This disease has no cure I know. I am waiting to be broken at your knees.
But it’s all right. There was nothing I wanted.
On afternoons the world is simple and supple; the whole of my being could form a small puddle. I want to be a dog in grass before the rain, moving minute by minute in the pleasure God made. Some nights I wish I could be a child, but I could not stand all the confusion and first tries. No one knows of a place I can hide, and the creek in the backyard has just run dry.
But it’s all right. There was nothing I wanted. So it’s all right.
