Antipope: One of These Days



One of these days
When I find no words
I feel I have become
A stranger, the other,

And my hands go useless
I speak there is no sound
The waves rise to wash me away

Life is an ocean
My heart alone on shallows

The sky becomes the sea
There are stars in the depths
In the deep below
I will see you again


Empty spaces
Where our shadows used to lie
The warmth in the sand
Lingers no more

It all makes sense
In reverse
The mute orgasm
Of your last smile

Life is an ocean
Our hearts sail to never return

The sky becomes the sea
There are stars in the depths
In the deep below
I will see you again
