Track four on Joe Hedges second full-length solo album Alchemy.

lyrics

oh no
we're speaking only
with our minds and hands tonight

mark it down in charts and tables
i'm still human but i'm getting by

how long will it take them to get here
in the fields in the summer time

come quick the sun is crashing
i'm giving up when the weather dies


pass the place
where our bodies wait
don't slow down don't turn back now you're alive

lead from here
and you'll disappear
don't second guess it
your disconnected home


i didn't want to be found
i guess i had to roll
i didn't want to be found
i'm illogical
i didn't want to be found
but i could feel the pull
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i'm illogical


so tall we reached the heavens
so strong we swallowed suns
we learned to loved the darkness
i learned to need no one

these black machines will translate
back to words we can understand
these lips and mouths are useless
the skies have turned to land


pass the place
where our bodies wait
don't slow down don't turn back now you're alone

holding on
'til these wraiths are gone
don't second guess it
your disconnected home


i didn't want to be found
i guess i had to roll
i didn't want to be found
i'm illogical
i didn't want to be found
but i could feel the pull
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i'm illogical

maybe you're something more
than whose side you're on
maybe you're something more
than whose side
whose side
whose side


i didn't want to be found
i guess i had to roll
i didn't want to be found
i'm illogical
i didn't want to be found
but i could feel the pull
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i'm illogical
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i'm illogical
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i guess i'm just a proletarian
i'm illogical


skin glows like rainbows
turning pixels into hands

blue lights unplugged i'm
reappearing where i stand

skin glows like rainbows
turning pixels into hands

blue lights unplugged i'm
reappearing where i stand
