Ides of Midnight

from by Bronwyn Rose

lyrics

Yes I know it’s midnight
the crow black eyes curl around her head
foreseeing the fog of a gridlock dawn
she jumps the hurdles to her bed

Yes I know it’s daylight
Patches of sun appear on the wall
Reflected down from an orange window
filtered through the crystal ball
Into the ides of midnight

I dreamed I lived with blackbirds
Inside an ancient pie
There were 7000 horses
Opening gates a millennium wide
I saw them whipping power
They had it on its knees
To open the gates of enslaved hours
But no one could find the key

Owls call around her
Underneath the hooded sky
100,000 horses
pull the weight of ties that bind
into the ides of midnight

You don’t have to open up your eyes
You don’t have to try to harness the sky
Just cut the chains off of your mouth
And ask the mountains why
Just cut the vault out of your throat
And ask the oceans why
And try to make the hours come alive

I don’t even want speculate about it
I don’t even want to reciprocate
Your thrown stones
I don’t even want to talk about it
I don’t even want to be there when you
Harvest the seeds we’ve sown

Yes I know I’m still here
Reflexes answer to the dawn
She sleeps in the bone yard of my hours
As I mark the page of another day gone
into the ides of midnight

Owls call around her
Underneath the hooded sky
100,000 horses
pull the weight of ties that bind
into the ides of midnight
