Song of the day 

Trying not to die is so taxing

You take a breath just to let it out again

Waking up is an exercise in trust

But you’re gonna find something to hold close 

In the moonless night I wait for your ghost

Oh, how we put the days away
We just danced beneath the sea of snakes

We can bury our heads in our rooms and our beds

Until we see those days again

Trying to live on is so taxing
Just stacking up all those failures and accidents

We’ve thrown away on a mountain of mistakes

I’ve watched in the dark and counted them all

In the moonless night I wait for your call

Oh, how we put the days away

We just danced beneath the sea of snakes

We can bury our heads in our rooms and our beds

We can bury our ways in these songs we have sung

And we can bury our limbs underneath all these hands

Until we see those days again
