Amphibian - The Static Age

It's been a long time since i hurt
in the absence of reason
breathing in water and in dirt
amphibious
it's been a long time

it's been a long time since i heard
the words that i'm speaking
soft as the wool of listless lambs
on the verge of the bleeding
it's been a long time

i steal
the words that fall from her
red lips
not like i hoped
and i know
i want it all wrong

searching the pages for a time
when words still had meaning
searching the words for any sign
if this is dignity...
it's been a long time
