about

4th track off debut LP 'Eulogy' by Vaultry.

lyrics

Impale me with the horns you found in the cruel sea
Carve a circle around my feet
So you can lay me on the floor and let my bones fall somewhere between the rock and the stone

You don’t have to see the way we’re caught between the devil and the deep
You can feel the weight pressed against your skin, sure of uncertainty

We opened wounds, like rivers the size of oceans
A vice we never devoted to
You feel like falling while on the ground
It makes me doubt myself, to watch me drown

You don’t have to see the way we’re caught between the devil and the deep
You can feel the weight pressed against your skin, sure of uncertainty
You don’t have to see the way we’re caught between the devil and the deep
You can feel the weight pressed against your skin, sure of uncertainty

Have you ever watched a candle fight against your breath caught in the jaws between life and death
We were made for uncertainty

We were made for uncertainty

You don’t have to see the way we’re caught between the devil and the deep
You can feel the weight pressed against your skin, sure of uncertainty
You don’t have to see the way we’re caught between the devil and the deep
You can feel the weight pressed against your skin, sure of uncertainty
I’ve seen the way you look at me, with eyes as empty as the deep

I’ll watch you from the cliffs, as they cut through the fog that brushed against your lips
The winds whispering in tongues, speaking words that steal the breath from your lungs
A language caught between the devil and the deep, based on a culture crafted in uncertainty
You’ll say goodbye and I’ll speak of love, we'll contradict the only thoughts we ever spoke of
