No Rest
Dry the River Lyrics


I used to be a king alone
Like Solomon or Rehoboam
And in the eaves, the Corvidae
Did jealous keep my picture frames
And everything did oxidate in place

But then you came, a single cell
With astrolabe and carousel
And algebra and symmetry
And none of this was lost on me
And I could see how still I'd been before

If I don't eat, I don't sleep at all
Like limbs in procession
Like so many birds
Stampeding like oxen
Our hearts are a herd

I loved you in the bed
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the bed

Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding out?

I loved you in the bed
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best

I used to be a king alone
Like Solomon or Rehoboam
And in the eaves, the Corvidae
Did jealous keep my picture frames
And everything did oxidate in place.

But then you came, a single cell
With astrolabe and carousel
And algebra and symmetry
And none of this was lost on me
And I could see how still I’d been before

If I don’t eat, I don’t sleep at all
Like limbs in procession,
Like so many birds
Stampeding like oxen,
Our hearts are a herd

I loved you in the bed
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the bed

Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding out?

I loved you in the bed
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the bed…

I come back to this song every couple of years and it holds up every time. The best kind of recurring gut punch.

This song just gets better every time I listen to it. Epic build up.

This is beautiful. I have never listened to a song so many times in a row as I did with this one. I could listen to these guys for forever. Simply amazing.
