Swimming In The Flood

Passion Pit

my eyes
have once again
been proven wrong
your clouds
your blanket and
my pity song
hovering on your front lawn
carry on untilit’s gone
what can I do?
the river’s overrun
we’re swimming in a flood, you know?
i thought i felt your touch
but the water’s rising up
(now all my lovers raise their cups)
then i lie naked in a rampage
in the flesh, face to face
with the onset
i forget everything
that’s ever made me
rise again, now slowly
leave my memory
