I ruin you you ruin me,
I tumble down on you,
Your embers' burning strength,
Just at arms length;
Will kingdom come till kingdom come?

For all my troubles, I get nowhere.
The dead still stare,
I'm stuck in her stare,
I'm stuck in her stare,
I'm stuck in her stare...

Oh Mirabál,
Oh Mirabál,
Oh Mirabál,
Shimmer do you,
Shimmer you do,
Shimmer do you,
Shimmer you do!

What could be more intangible?
intangible than touching thee?
What will it be, your body?  (Why must it be?) 
Or your love? (Why must it be?)
Oh how impossible is your love!
Oh how impossible!
Oh how impossible is your love...
is your love?
What could be worse than wanting your love
your love your love your love...

Oh, how impossible is love,
Oh, how impossible impossible is love,
How impossible is love, 
oh, how impossible impossible...

Oh Mirabál,
Oh Mirabál,
As a spilléd urn, I waited,
At the tip of my tongue, my heart hangin'.
Can't hold a candle to the flame, to the flame,
For the flame I became, I became.
You gave me hell, 
oh you gave me life,
My fiery serpent held high, high!
Mercy, Mercy, Mercy…
I look upon your face, and know there must be a God,
If to look up on your face is to know there is a God,
Then I've never met my oldest friend,
I've never met my oldest friend,
 no I never...
I never met my oldest friend.

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.
