Lyrics

Seven Sleepers

The morning when we stayed up 'til the break of dawn
The same morning when we thought,
We could use a walk
We got out of the house
To forget the white heat

In the cold and clean sunlight
Watched our breath turn to eyes
Felt like seven sleepers waking up
With half closed eyes
Like babies just being born

And the whole world
The whole world
Changed the close it had worn

So we came by a station where we bought some drugs
In tiny paper cups
From the first Starbucks
That opened in this town
Then we wandered around

On cold clean marble floors
Passed the automatic doors
Shopped in seven stores
On three levels
They played us fake birdsong
We lost track of time

And the whole world
The whole world
Slipped right out of our minds
Slipped right out of our minds

From "Lushly" (2017)
