BLACK TIDE

we siphoned the dark from the night sky
we siphoned the dark from the night
because it's what we like
we siphoned the dark from the night
to make our black tide
we siphoned the dark from the night
with our oily fingers and our inky wishes
we've sealed ourselves away from the fish
with our searching lips
with our inky black lips and a long rubber hose
pulling and sucking, making it flow
we siphoned the dark from the night
hairless things with rubbery skin
pulling and sucking, pulling-sucking again
we swallowed the night and we spit at the shore
we swallowed the night and we spit
to make our black tide
