Breathe Like An Alien

Like a brother
sins of the father
colorblind arms of light
moonshapes in the night

i breathe like an alien
closed like an open door
breathe like an alien

tin and custard
robot monster
deeper and deeper
undersea creatures

we'll eat our young
bask in the sun
something is nothing that i haven't done

golden surface
with a purpose
colorblind in the night
moonshades of sunlight

to breathe like an alien
closed like an open wound
i don't want
to breathe like an alien

send it home
now closer than god

carry things home
tattered and worn
hand me down trinkets to keep on the lawn
