Islands - To a bond

To a bond
Underneath a bridge between two trees
Both blowing leaves
Into that great ravine
You came swimming with me
I like how you swim
You do it with ease
Then an oar came down
Struck the water
Bad luck struck us down
Bruised, removed you
Brought you to shore
Before they came for you
Then I watched you disappear
Dripping bloodstained footsteps smear
Don't let the bleeding stop
It's everything you got
In a body
Undergoing night surgery, enemy
Wants to cut into me
I escaped in the nick of time,
Centipede
Floats by on a leaf
I like how it floats
It does it with ease
Saw you on the ledge
Talked you down
Talked your ear off, then
We walked around
'Till you had to leave
To catch a train
At 10
Gone around the bend
But bound like Chinese feet
Don't go unraveling
Travelling into the blue
Returned to look for you
Couldn't say goodbye
The porch light in my heart
Had gone out in the dark
And flies
Had gone out in the dark
Like flies
Gone out in the dark
