LYRIC
Apples

She can hear the apples falling all around the garden
She will leave them there to rot into the earth
Idle will she stand to watch them sour from their sweetness
And she feels the season's weakness at its worst

She wipes her tears with the sleeves
Where her heart used to be
Before she swallowed the key with her medicine

She can smell the fallen apples sinking into carbon
She's aware with every atom, feeling numb
Soon the autumn leaves will weave another broken blanket
And she'll curl up underneath it and be done

She wipes her tears with the sleeves
Where her heart used to be
Before she swallowed the key with her medicine

Now naked stands the tree, yet somehow dignified and hopeful
Knows the future will be fruitful in good time
And she recalls the sound of apples sinking in the ground
And she makes a solemn vow to change her mind

She wipes her tears with the sleeves
Where her heart used to be
Before she swallowed the key with her medicine

She wipes her tears with a sleeve
Where her heart used to be
Before she swallowed the key with her medicine
Before she swallowed the key with her medicine
