lyrics

Copper

what was started with conduction ended in corrosion
rusted light into the sky and salt into the ocean
see the elements succumb to bittersweet persuasion
taste the copper on my tongue
love's abrasions have polished it to shine

circuits and soldered wire
watch the red and gold conspire
brightening with the heat
to defer lightning

what was started with illusion ended in erosion
escape the labor of the stillness, hide behind the motion
the lure of metal can obscure the hazards of extraction
taste the copper on my tongue
chain reaction, a reluctant decline

what was started with conduction ended in corrosion
salt into the ocean, light into the sky
