State Lyrics


Lyrics “State” by Laura Stevenson


How we all spill out of the earth?
Naked like sick birds
Uncomfortable with words
Visceral and unfurled like blood feathers under the skin
I’m in a state again, but I stay polite
I stay polite

It keeps me alive
It keeps me alive
It’s easier, right?

And the state washes over me
And the dust from the cars and the cussing in halls
And the trucks and the shards and the spoiling stars

My memory fades
My memory fades
And every day it gets so hot
So hot
So hot

What a sterling way to come
I become rage
A shining example of pure anger
Pure and real and sticky and moving and sweet




Laura Stevenson Lyrics
