Church Girls – Basement Lyrics

On the day I went to see you city blocks were up in flames
In a way I’m drifting by without a trace
It’s a dullness in the feeling
Or a calm before the storm
Couldn’t tell you anymore

Somewhere in the basement
Furnace is somehow lit
Dust glints in beams of broken light
I’m barely keeping it alive
I’m barely keeping it alive

Hold on before it’s hauled away
An ocean of long fading days
When drowning, who am I to blame?
I’m holding before it’s hauled away

Creaking steps up to the attic after all I crawled in place
With the waning tonic coursing through my veins
Got me counting nights so finite
As the moon through the window
Sears my shadow to the floor

Somewhere in the basement
Furnace is somehow lit
Dust glints in beams of broken light
I’m barely keeping it alive
I’m barely keeping it alive

Hold on before it’s hauled away
An ocean of long fading days
When drowning, who am I to blame?
I’m holding before it’s hauled away
