about

From the album "54 Strange Words" by The Bipeds

lyrics

Dressful of Dreams
In the key of Dm

Amnesia sets in
At the moment of birth
Like the smell of the rain
When it hits dry earth
The seeds of forgetfulness
Like a face in the steam
A bowlful of lightning
And a dressful of dreams

And you can hear...
Your blood moving

The shadow of confusion
A brittle heart exposed
You can feel the insects moving
In the fibers of your clothes
So you pull it from the shoulder
And you hold it down with pins
And there's a static charge in the atmosphere
Just before the storm begins

And you can hear...
Your blood moving
You can hear...
Your blood

Suspended for a moment
In the silver light
Something flickers briefly
At the edge of your sight
In that instant of silence
As you leave the ground
And you can hear your blood
Moving through you
But that's the only sound

SILENT BRIDGE

We opened up the windows
To the winter air
Sorting through the ashes
But there's nothing there
We set the place on fire
Even though it was our home
Sifting through the ashes
The kind of work you do when you're alone

And you can hear...
Your blood moving
You can hear...
Your blood moving
You can hear....
Your blood, your blood
Your blood, your blood
That's the only sound
