lyrics

Good night little Lili
It’s time for your father to sleep
'Cause there is a storm and it's headed this way
And its eye is looking for me

And the van smells like cardboard soaked with coffee
& the windbreaker’s fresh embroidery
When I was a boy
At the garage’s jaw I’d sit
And I would wait for those clouds to roll in

I feel the tongue of the rain
As it's lapping at my cheeks
I've been hypnotized by swirling winds
And tornado turns
Part of me is in meteorology

And so I lean into the wind
And into the gale I scream
Gloves grip the throat of the microphone
My words dissolve in the windscreen

And the eyewall is like an event horizon
It's pulling at everything and me
But particles of data dust won’t carry me away
I will carve your name into my history

When we retire your name
