Parquet Courts

Parquet Courts - Sunbathing Animal lyrics

rate me


One creature I return to, one habit I neglect

I cannot slow the pace at which I yearn

Frank and I unabashed, I become a frozen servant

Smiling, asking nothing in return

Fang-tooth, woman foaming at the mouth as she addressed me

Not with moving lips, but with the rabid wild arresting

Words not yet intended to identify emotion

Scrawling bold and oblique in my head

I’ve hung out at your service jobs

I’ve watched you wait and be ignored

Bled into the clatter, as they sipped at what you poured

I cling to your perimeter as you float in their margins

Oblivious to being stung, there satellite becomes my sun

I’ve flown into that trap before, when things have gotten dark

In the depths of stranger's glances lays the most ferocious spark


Most freedom is deceiving, if such a thing exists

When I was young I knew, but didn’t care

Faces change and shape to represent the same old beast

I want to flee but I can only stare

It’s the sound a captive heart makes as it sizzles into vapor

The title hum of fondness like a spike-wave oscillator

The rabid UV grin that beckons me into approaching

Grasping as it recedes into space

Who greets me first when I arive, who breaking into my half-shut eyes?

It’s in the blaze of your embrace where I feel more real and alive

The bosom of one thousand watts into my skin into my guts

Running circles in my mind, now, on record, terrified

That porch we hit the first time, so badly, I died

In his brief emancipation he can feel what I cannot


There’s a patch of light that hits the floor, till it occupy(?)

Stretch my arms and legs and close my eyes

I now can hear my pulse alone, this manic pace I cannot slow

I do not miss the child you stole

Frying and abiding, I’m in your control

Like a sunbathing animal

A sunbathing animal x6

A sun
