lyrics

I was born with no reaction alight and beset and possessed by absent hands of brute that I couldn't understand
I was born askew in the motion, dug heels, rotten seeds inside the dirt, it's a drag when you're being drawn apart
Cold torpor and inanimate tides, we met one another in our appetite for dying and said "Alright, I can always stomach the dirt, and stomach some more,"
and remain invulnerable to the static and safe
it means absolutely nothing but more than I can say, and it's alright
It's alright if there's nothing to mean

Cause I'm a void boy, and I feed on distraction
and the thing staring back at me is just white refraction
Cause I'm a void boy, and a whale is in the deep
and my tongue's reaching to learn other words we'll never speak

Sting clinging in the fixtures and tides, though we're much too much embedded and all intertwined in the design of the vacant and the bottomless black to settle at that
And now speaking well before when this has all capsized, here will be home for a little while, and it's alright, it's alright to go, either's right

Cause I'm a void boy, and I feed on distraction
and the thing staring back at me, well it's white refraction
Cause I'm a void boy, and a whale is underneath
and my head will break and burn on the words we couldn't read

Drowned in the deep
