Tall Grasses Low

from by Nick Stiner

lyrics

If you domesticate these wild eyes
And lay all the tall grasses low
And hide all that’s shown well oh my my

And lionize these warrior cries
And put a heat inside this blood
As if there wasn’t enough all my life

Then you’d make this war

Between these glacial tides and these traffic lights
My motion finally comes to rest
Wire-drawn by footsteps to spell my time

If I save some seeds and a few good teeth
And put some kind words on my tongue
I hope that’d be enough to get me by

So I could lie, so I could just abide
In the last of this fading light
