Parquet Courts – Pathos Prairie lyrics

Faster than hope flies cold through my veins
Faster than cruelty could drain it out
I commit crimes and I call them mistakes
Nothing denies like a heart in doubt
This I know
People flow like streams where I bathe
Then drift along to a foreign place
The past like a servant that bends for our sake
Into the lines we tell it to trace

Like how we are taught
Like how we are not
Like how we hide ourselves in

Laughter in sunshine, laughter in pain
Keeps pace of heart in an honest life
But after the fondness for life is erased
What races on in my soul
Besides rabid mutts that fight and
Fuck and howl till they faint
They too run on when the moon is
Lit, faster than love turns itself
Into rage, faster than I attempt
To forget

Like how
We desire
Like how
We embrace
Like how we give up
Like how we make love
Like how we taste
When we're spit away
Like how
We are wild
Like how
We are pure
Like how we despise
Like how we tell lies
Like how we're sure we're gonna
