lyrics

Your veins choke on the thousands of gigabytes uploading the thought of death realized.
Your heart is beating chest pains.

There's no word for that in your language?

Translator in collapse, lost inside a burning map, died dreaming of syntax.
Can you translate the rocks in your mouth?
Translator in collapse, her heart beats like a crush of glass, good translations are coming home, an open mouth full of dial tone.
That's just the language of us landmines.

We ran the script and your heart is null,
A loss of mora from the skull.
The hard drive in your spine is spinning fast, writing the things into the disk of your back.

Translator in collapse, lost inside a burning map, died dreaming of syntax.
Can you translate the rocks in your mouth?
Translator in collapse, her heart beats like a crush of glass, good translations are coming home, an open mouth full of dial tone.
That's just the language of us landmines.
