unison Lyrics by Gang of Youths

 

You’re a long damn way from North Carolina now

What a goddamn victory, I guess
Swimming it up like assholes at Sina Lei
The way my ancestors did

But if they find me face down and dead in the chuck
Least they’d know that I loved you this much
Was happy I caved upon your insistence
‘Cause now it all means something

You
And me
In this ageless thing

And it takes and it takes
And it moves and he makes us
Of one mind
And he takes and he takes

I wish I could make it so you could see yourself
Just seeing everything
Whatever it’s called out there in the firmament

A screed
A view
In an endless feed
Of disquiet I never knew

I had
I guess
But I am full to the head
Of unsayable things that I don’t want to forget

And it takes and it takes
And it moves and he makes us
Of one mind
And he takes and he takes

And it takes and it takes
And it moves and he makes us
Of one mind
And he takes and he takes

Tenterhooks
‘Cause the gods know that I am tender prey
And heaven knows that if they balled me away
Would I reach your love again?

Flawless paradise
And I’m raised up in a sky blue sky
In a bad deed with no good alibies
Will I see your love again?

Will I feel your love again?

And it takes and it takes
And it moves and he makes us
Of one mind
And he takes and he takes

And it takes and it takes
And it moves and he makes us
Of one mind
And he takes and he takes

I was born and survived by some cold inner space
Till you called out and told me I belonged in this place
And when my body was splayed out in a miracle mile
“Let ’em catch me and kill me, let them take me in style”
You’re the only one, the only one
That I know in some way I’ll be thinking of
When I’ve made my bed and I’ve paid my dues
At least you’ll know that I loved you
