the [blue gorgeous] escapists

from mixtape by ::leslie jill helpert º≠º



moses and so many other famous frickin people were Escapists, and sometimes I think there's just nothing wrong with being That.


you dreamt you sucking on the fruit of the earth
nothing, nothing could sate your thirst.
what's worse was how the sweet taste changed
on your strong tongue nothing stays the same
i'll never look into your eyes (again)

you dreamt you were sucking fruit from the gun
the one you had slung to your hip when you were young
you raised it to the sky like a skewer in the sun
you wanted a warm bite of an apple
but you broke your teeth on the bullet from a battle.

I want to go
and go
and go
cuz baby we are noble to be The Escapists
I want to go
and go
and go
Or else we'll be like time,
imprisoned convicts.

You dreamt you were riding the back of a slug.
The blue gorgeous excrements of his slowness
shined in your palm
When you woke up on the floor to a drum
You knew nothing was real
Now What do you feel?

Punch holes in your floor
until you punched into the dirt
you punch through all the ground
you're on the other side of the world

From San Francisco to Mont Marte,
there's your heart!

You dreamt you were sucking
the fruit of the earth
nothing i mean nothing
can sate your thirst
it's a curse
your taste buds change
on your strong tongue
nothing can stay the same.

Oh I wish I could feel your hand fall
heavy asleep on my breast
