lyrics

bizarre
how brilliant you are
bright as any star
you light the morning sheets
from underneath
your hills are sweet
sweet with sleep
your hollows all your secrets keep
your dreaming mouth unmade
your eyelids tidal with brain waves

bizarre
how brilliant you are
bright as any star
you light the morning sheets
from underneath
your muscles ache to pull a plow
the clouds race shadows cross your brow
you need some magnifying lens
to pull your light into your hands
bizarre

horse hooves applaud you
on the cobble
all the grinning dogs they follow
all the birds light in your tree
all this while you are still asleep
owls and engines fill the valley
the valley is littered
with flying machines
a hoopa feather in your hand
still you don’t see your beauty

bizarre
how caught in flight you are
struggling in the air
I see but can’t cut the strings
tangled in your fingered wings
your muscles ache to pull a plow
the clouds race shadows cross your brow
you need some magnifying lens
to pull your light into your hands
bizarre

you light the morning sheets
from underneath
your muscles ache

wind wreaks havoc on your water
yes your stronger than your fathers
yes you know which path to take
all from six thousand miles away
horse hooves applaud you on the cobble
the cobble is littered with flying machines
a hoopa feather in your hand
still you don’t see your beauty

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
