The Microphones Lyrics


Oh! the Sand!
Oh! the Spark!
Oh! the Open Land!
the Swelling dark!
Oh! my Hands!
Oh! my Airy Palms!
Oh! the Lack!
Oh! My Bending Back!
Oh! the size of my empty lap!
but Oh! My Map to distant foothills rise!

Open hands,
the span,
oh the swelling sound over massive rounds!

Lyrics:
[Verse 1]
Oh, the sand
Oh, the spark
Oh, the open land
The swelling dark
Oh, my hands
Oh, my airy palms
Oh, the lack
Oh, my bending back
Oh, the size
Of my empty lap
Oh, my map
To distant foot hills' rise

[Verse 2]
Open hands
Oh, the span
Oh, the swelling sound
Over massive rounds

The whole build up from 3:01 on gets me all teary. It is honestly so beautiful. It is so raw. Organic. Emotional. I love everything about it!

Open hands
