about

Hieroglyphics is a song written by my friend Kimber of Kimber and the No-Bodies (go check her out! kimberandthenobodies.bandcamp.com )

She played it for me all the way back in 2015 and I've wanted to cover it ever since. Thanks so much for letting me do this, Kimber! <3

Releasing as a single, this track will be featured on my upcoming EP, which will be released when I can manage to finish it.

lyrics

Bluest skies, widest thighs
I can take you through my eyes
With some lies, I could try
No please don't you ever cry

I am apathy, so omit me
I am empathy, so come try me

Just a background on a screen
Tell me you know what I mean
On your nothing I will lean
Come on, and rip my seam
Just a background on a screen
Tell me you know what I mean
On your nothing I will lean
Come on, and rip my seam

Fields of Rye, the end is nigh
Don't you sigh, your feet are tied
Never high, half the pie
By and by we'll never die

I am apathy, so omit me
I am empathy, so come try me

Just a background on a screen
Tell me you know what I mean
On your nothing I will lean
Come on, and rip my seam
Just a background on a screen
Tell me you know what I mean
On your nothing I will lean
Come on, and rip my seam

We are not the same, me and you
But you are my shame, all of you
