lyrics

my algae doesn’t let my pond life breathe
(pull your weight)
keeps it cordoned and policed
but since that ‘new moon’ is just the same one
come on old Sun
pull your weight

pull your weight
‘cause i’m crawling out from the grey
come to show you my beauty before its decayed
to say i possess the pulse and plight
of a parasite that grows towards the light
(so pull your weight)

my ancestors and me
(pull your weight)
born with more eyes than teeth
were washed up on the sand
like the first life on land
so come on old Sun
pull your weight

pull your weight
‘cause i’m crawling out from the grey
come to show you my beauty before its decayed
to say i possess the pulse and plight
of a parasite that grows towards the light

stay the night
fed in day starved in darkness
i’ll take my time and my chances
treasured or tarnished
drenched in light drowned in
daylight your problem is this:
i was born short sighted
i’ve never hit a target
drenched in light drowned in
daylight
stay the night

or i’ll get up in your face
and throw my weight
into your corners and shades
‘cause since that new moon is still the same one
come on old sun
pull your weight

pull your weight
‘cause i’m crawling out of the grey
come to show you my beauty before its decayed
to say i possess the pulse and plight
of a parasite that grows towards the light
stay the night
daylight
spend the night
