lyrics

And all that's left of you now,
Is all that I want,
And all that's left of you now,
Is all that I want,
You're more than a body you haunt 
then a body to haunt…

Like a youngin' runnin’, runnin’,
His warm breath, cold cloudling,
As quick as death.
My lungs blossom in the burning,
Their burning:
"This earth is like the next."
My bones'll never know no other bones,
My flesh no other flesh. 
Do I, a mere drop, fall to the glass to break?
To break? Or to the still water?

Where there's no more need to believe,
Where there's nothing to achieve.
Where you'll find your never on time,
you'll find you're never late. 
You won't find yourself doing
The very thing you hate.
Where there's room enough for us all
 there are many,
Many empty rooms...

Why do I look forward to the past?
For the good old days to be here at last?
What more for me than this gravity?
I dare not raise my eyes to see,
For now that I know,
Now that I know,
Now that I think I know the way I know,
Why for does the apple grow?
Why and if it is sweet the way I know?
Forbid that I might know it as it is unto itself.
I owe you now nothing but my living hell.
Oh god, are you my god?
Oh god, are you my god and my god?

Why is heavens fire the same light
In which hell burns?
Why is heavens fire the same light
In which hell burns?
Where there's room enough for us all,
There are many, 
there are many empty rooms,
There are many empty rooms...

about

NUMBTONGUE South Carolina

There is always truth in ruin.

NUMBTONGUE is a personal project of SC native Bobby Hatfield of The Sea Wolf Mutiny.

Self recorded over 3 years, debut album "Exhumation" is an experimental sonic pulp, defined by the lofi environs in which it was made. More questions than answers unfold amid studies in R&B/soul, psychrock, & 90's alternative w/all the urgency & joyful melancholy of previous work.
