Window Paine

"Coming down off the long trip now. It's almost over people. There is still one more vista to reach, one last dive into the deep. Pistons start to sputter, the wings start to sag, nose points straight down. The window to my heart is opened up with lysergic acid and strychnine. Alchemy pries open now what a crowbar cannot. We are in the ethers now. With no oxygen, the ends fray and even the pleasantries are over. It's a rude conclusion to draw. An awakening. The trip doesn't end, it just stops." -BC, Gish 2011 re-issue liner notes

 

Lyrics

window paine around my heart
shadow stream around my heart

do what you're gonna do
and say what you're gonna say
do what you're gonna do
yeah, start today
start today

wind blows shame around my heart
shadows scream around my heart

what are you coming to?
stripped down to the bone
life ain't living on your own
all alone

do what you're gonna do
and say what you're gonna say
do what you're gonna do
yeah, start today
start today
