Fineshrine
Purity Ring Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Get a little closer, let fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you
Through arms, or maybe under, under you

I'll put the South pockets gladly
Over the rocky cliffs that you leap
To peer over and not forget what feet are
splitting threads of thunder over me

That I might see with my chest and sink
into the edges round you
Into the lakes and quarries that brink
on all the edges round you, round you

Get a little closer, let fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you
The London baby crowns over you

Get a little closer let fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you
Through arms, or maybe under, under you

I'll put the South pockets gladly
Over the rocky cliffs that you leap
To peer over and not forget what feet are
Splitting threads of thunder over me

Listen closely, closely to the floor
Emitting all its graces through the pores
You'd make a fine shrine in me
You'd build a fine shrine to me

That I might see with my chest and sink
Into the edges round you
Into the lakes and quarries that brink
On all the edges round you, round you

Get a little closer, let fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you
The London baby crowns over you

Get a little closer, let fold
Cut open my sternum and pull
My little ribs around you
Through arms, or maybe under, under you

The opening lines, "Get a little closer, let fold, Cut open my sternum and pull, My little ribs around you," suggest a desire for intimacy and a willingness to give oneself over to another person completely.

The subsequent lines continue to emphasize this sense of closeness, with references to rocky cliffs, thunder, and lakes and quarries. The singer seems to be suggesting that they want to be completely enveloped by the person they're singing to, and to become a part of the natural world around them.

The final verse, "You'd make a fine shrine in me, You'd build a fine shrine to me" suggests that the singer is willing to honor and worship the person they're singing to, and that they see them as something sacred and holy. The lyrics to "Fineshrine" are intense and deeply personal, conveying a sense of vulnerability and a desperate desire for closeness.

Discovered when I was 14or15, now I’m 26. Sending me back to roaming my high school hallways, headphones in, numb, fighting the crowds, everyone moving past me in what feels like slow motion.
