lyrics

Junebug on the kitchen door, rust on the weathervane
He don’t care what it means, he just wants to know their names
He tries to rest inside things, simple as they are
He carries round a field guide, watermarked and torn

Curtains on the clothesline catch the dust and wind
All her clothes like cerements before they ever touch the skin
Mary is the mother of a strong bow-legged boy
She carries round a wine glass and a small testament

He the son of a dead man, son of a lonely girl
She goes out on Fridays trying to find a decent one
She tries to rest inside them, simple as they say
She confuse the things they take with things she gives away

He just wants her eyes to close, close them with his hands
Climbing down the fire escape, leaving her within
The solemn house of Christ, house of dust and wind
River won’t you rise?

Mayflies, mayflies with April wings
Move the air around him before they touch upon his skin
Falling into time now, bodies make a rain
Cerements behind, rust on the weathervane
