Lie in the soil
Flute it down, prowl
You're their "knock-off baby"
They're your dull white noise

Predator while
Chasing ghosts like hope
Second chances come to you
Like birds to spring

You tried, lioness
But you won, lioness
Rest those teeth of yours

Light wielder, a sun I never met
Swimming deep water
It isn't dawn yet
Let me drink that baby blue for now

You tried, lioness
From the wood you led me
I'll find my steel

I was one with your jaw
His elephant rib
Waking feather-locked
I didn't know she wanted wings

You tried, lioness
You can go to sleep
I made you a bed of carnations
