Carbon Lyrics

by Tori Amos

Carbon made, found her at the end of a chain
Time to race she said "Race the downhill"
Behind crystalline irises loons can dive
Where the world bleeds white

Just keep your eyes on her
Keep don't look away
Keep your eyes on her horizon

Bear Claw, free fall a Gunner's view black and blue
Shred in ribbons of lithium
Blow by blow her mind cut in sheets
Layers deep, now unraveling

Just keep your eyes on her
Keep don't look away
Keep your eyes on her horizon

Get me Neil on the line, no I can't hold, have him read
"Snow glass apples" where nothing is what it seems
"Little sis you must crack this", he says to me
"You must go in again"

Carbon made only wants to be unmade
Blade to ice, it's Double Diamond time

And keep your eyes on her
Keep don't look away
Keep your eyes on her horizon
On her eyes, on her horizon
