Day After

lyrics

We laughed so much our chests caved in
our stomachs ruptured
Some kind of rapture
like in scripture

We cried so much we thought we'd drown
We thought we'd perish
withered pale and hairless
naked and embarrassed

But instead
we washed up on gentle shores
our wounds healed and sealed
and our bones restored

We ate and ate until we could eat no more
We drank and drank until we drink no more
We slept and slept until we could sleep no more
We dreamt until there was no morning
We dreamt until there was no morning
We dreamt until there was no mourning.
