lyrics

Way out at sea
Stars out-gleam your ceiling
Stickers with your bedlight off
Stars lose their sheen
When we go to port, eight grain
Silos flashing signals disrupt dark
Every time we go to port
You empty like semi-truck
And I stale like spilt grain
Dump the freight, ship it out
They're tipping tractor trailers
Like children's toys:
Na Na, trailer-side down
Dump the freight, ship it out
Thanks for the lift, dear
Up here in this elevator
I see your taillights go
Basking in your brilliance,
I wallow in your afterglow

With just your lips
You sent a reel of perfect
Colors, perfect patterns, spiraling 'round
But colors fade,
Engulfed in the grain, quicksand
Sinking, slowly sinking, slowly down
Another migrant worker drowned
Walking down the corn grain
Caught forty feet up a silo-grain tower
"Come on up," the man said,
"I got this goddamn psoriasis,
I'm drunk and I'm violent,
And I can't afford a cigarette.
So come on up, come on up."
When you take my hand
Cusping my fingers
I know I got it bad
"Now come on up, come on up"
It's rushing back
Warmth through my heart-core
I know you won't be back
Still basking in your brilliance,
I wallow in your afterglow
Colors all colliding
Turning like kaleidoscopes
If they'd sing, they'd be like,
"Na Na, Na Na, Na Na”
