"Roaming Empire" from the Maritime album "Magnetic Bodies/Maps of Bones" - available now on Dangerbird Records.
It’s Wednesday morning in St. Paul. It’s still Tuesday night,
I didn’t sleep at all the sparrow and the city want to call
out the changes and the river carries on, under the highway, over early
morning sound. The shadows hand in hand
until lonesome gods are almost gone.
I’ll be as honest as I can, I told the truth
A lot more when I began I knew
a lot more than I do now.
If we are just these hearts and bones, I cannot leave
yours well enough alone when we have nothing
Left there’s nothing less between us.
We are the roaming empirehttp://maritimesongs.comhttp://dangerbirdrecords.com
