about

featuring delilah's messiah, mdknightbabe, we came together on this to help delilah and her family get through some difficult times, both financially and health-wise. all proceeds from the sale of this track will go to that cause.

lyrics

lucid and slow
visceral and low
the broken rhythms to prolong
a secret destiny
a place you can only reach
when you're with me

silent vows pressing teeth to tender lips
breath after heated breath turns
the battlements into burning ships
like the smoothest silk and bone
and the rise and fall of tides
places we call home forever entwined

rewrite the velvet lines
with a soft tongue
with no forgiveness
for the heated and implicit discussions
underneath the skins
and you and me

silent vows pressing teeth to tender lips
breath after heated breath turns
the battlements into burning ships
like the smoothest silk and bone
and the rise and fall of tides
places we call home forever entwined

and when she calls
her voice is a song
leading me to her shores
it's where i belong

holy ground to worship
within the delicate blooms
flooding the sacrament
with the wine of our fruit
that burns with desire
between you and me

silent vows pressing teeth to tender lips
breath after heated breath turns
the battlements into burning ships
like the smoothest silk and bone
and the rise and fall of tides
places we call home forever entwined
