lyrics

auto

my city is sucking my soul

i was missing palaces
all ramshackle toolsheds and
uncut shanty towns
twist between misplaced greenhouses
with isosceles rooftops lining the canals

decorating deltas where you found the
washed up bones of that silent kid
who went missing from your neighbourhood
you know she was gone before she was gone for good

there’s thunder in my head and a
flame behind my nose telling me that
I should go

it was all sinking ships and
i was busting lips
fireflies in the water and buzzing streetlamps
and i was locked inside every crack in the footpath
the hum of the park got louder at night and
cancers grow all over the city but
it’s still very pretty and
we were parasites in Paris
we were troglodytes embarrassed by the
manners and behaviours of the modern man

no one really knows their kids
nobody kisses their parents anymore
no one really talks to their kids and
nobody talks to their parents anymore
it’s all been said before it’s said
i’m done

auto

my city is sucking my soul
