Goldwater Rain

Goldwater - A mixture of concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. A highly corrosive liquid that will dissolve gold and other resistant substances.

Running through the evening
Running through the day
The river of Fate
In the Ocean of Space

In a million years
Meteors pelt the beaches
Lay me down
In the cold reaches

Goldwater Rain
Goldwater Rain

What became of the loves become photographs?
Earthquakes silent to the seismograph

I see you across the room
I see you across the world

Under Berlin’s Glass Clouds
You were 5ft 10” tall
A perfect smile
On a perfect body

& I feel like I’m missing
Memories faded to extinction
Pieces of sleep
A pale landscape
Desert heat

stunned in the unbearable light
Like the blast of the full-noon sun at midnight

Goldwater Rain
Goldwater Rain

The future disappears
With it’s harvests of blood
& harvests of roses
I leave no footprint
No last wishes
