lyrics

Who am I that you would consider me?
Who am I?
Who am I that you would remember me?

"I take whatever I can get,
What coin, what play, 
whatever love they might give & forget."
Her white gold hair he twisted 
to black lock of his and kissed it,
In equipoise clenching teeth and fist,
Her legs week under their words
"Life is a gift,
That you give to receive."
Their mother father still asleep,
She remembered the place they said was good for leapin’,
"Ignorance was bliss,
sometimes I think it still is..."
Why was it the more he tried to make believe the less she can?
She saw he left his beggin' can,
And so she ran,
In the white wool sweater she'd knit him.

Oh and then she saw him,
She knew she could stop him.
He can't help but want to believe it,
he can't help what he believes in.
Then she stumbled on the serpent,
Eyes of desert diamond's,
And it said,
"If matter matters at all 
it will shatter and fall 
and that will be all I am."

Will i will i will i i will i will i will
She could've sworn she saw a figure
reaching through the falling shatterings.

Who am I that you would consider me?
Who am I?
Will I die?
Only drinkin’ of me?

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.
