A Kind of Hunger

Hear it coming? Open season
Each death comes with a set of reasons
Go sleep beneath the river Jordan
Come care about me
Come care about me

=

tremble, recognize the distance
Go try and murder every preference
I’ll keep hanging ‘round for reference
Come care about me
Come care about me

=

breath, in the end, is a thing to be spent
Make it stop
Make it all swim around Me
You don’t own a thing
Gonna drown, let you see
Make it stop
Make it all quit around Me
I never lost, I never lost you

=

brother, meet me under water
deep and just a little further
each lungful pulls a little harder
come care about Me
come care about Me

=

changing, watching you with wonder
you’re less and getting even younger
dying is just a kind of hunger
come care about Me
come care about Me

=

breath, in the end, is a thing to be spent
Make it stop
Make it all swim around Me
You don’t own a thing
Gonna drown, let you see
Make it stop
Make it all quit around Me
I never lost, I never lost you
