Instruments, recording and production by Jacob Peter


Lower me onto the table, forgetting why
Strings are hanging over my head.
Pull my lips so I am able, to reply
With words that I’ve never said.

Thread unwinds, keep the end in the palm of your hand.
Squeezing tight, you pretend you’re a girl with a plan, he will give in.

He looks up from the table, remembers why
Her voice surrounds the air.
Pulling wires to disable, the crime
Of how we talk when we are scared.

Pull you up, let the sound go above the skin.
I won’t run away if I have time to begin,
let’s jump in.
Take off the wires and find ourselves again.
