Dessa - Everything Floats Lyrics




[Dessa & Cecil Otter:]
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past

[Cecil Otter:]
She keeps her mind closed
For repair on broken dreams
She won't let us in like it's our fault
She wrote them scenes and played the part
She's got this aching heart
That just can't wait to start breaking apart
Vacant parts of her body
To begin making art
Introducing its bloody sound to critics
And anybody wild that beats its sickness
To a bloody pulp
See it's nobody's fault her inner child drowned
In a river while she cried it deeper
I think I'll swim awhile
I think I'll think awhile
While drinking in this pile of leaves
Jump off, then go home cocked
The hope runs wild
They tore them down
Burn them at the stakes of my flames
And work the snakes in my veins like

[Dessa & Cecil Otter:]
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past

[Dessa:]
I got hella elegant etiquette
It's only indelicate when
They fuck with the sedatives
But, she's got a side with a thorn in it
And they say with some scorn in it
Like maybe she was born with it
And maybe it's Maybelline
They say that what's the matter with me
"It runs in the family"
But I'm just trying to get my ever-after happily
Avoid the modern maladies of vanity and apathy
I'm looking for a voice in the white noise
I'm trying to make a choice with the right boy
To lay me down into bed
Leash the hounds in my head
Somebody (somebody) to finally see me through it
Somebody to remind me that I'm the quantum unit
Of a treaty and a handshake
An audience and fanbase
A culture and a cause
A movement and a mob
I said a culture, a cause, a movement, a mob

[Dessa & Cecil Otter:]
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past
Everything floats down here
Anything that sinks from up there
Floats down here
Like she did her mask
Like she did her smile
The future is a bitter past

  9. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo also, I could look it up, but figured I'd ask, when is Murs coming? And with who?

  10. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo what time?

  11. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo I grew up in Vegas. That's bad ass! Now I'm jealous!

  12. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Oct 15th - already got my ticket to Grieves @ Kilby ct :)

  13. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Heh, sorry to hear you grew up in NV too...

  14. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Fuck yeah! Those are definitely some of my favorites, have you checked out his latest? Bloody Poetry, On the Rocks, Sunny Side of Hell, Boogie Man, Pressure Cracks, & Against the Bottom are my favorites... I will add you, I'm Alice White on FB...

  15. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Have you also checked out Grieves?

  16. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Hmm...maybe I just get lucky when I check my FB, esp with Doomtree, cause I have liked all the members, and they all usually post when they're doing a show, but maybe check their pages? I'm sure Rhymesayers has a mailing list as well...

    Depends on if I will be in town or not...I have been to both shows the last time they were here, and then when Sims & Dessa toured we went to both shows also, fuckin' bad ass!

    femmemommy

    what city u in?

  17. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo Atmosphere just came August 20th, I'm not sure but I think the CunninLynguists came last month as well :( You should really consider Liking them on FB, cause you will automatically get updates about upcoming shows in your news feed, that way you won't have to look for them :)

  18. shatteredviolets

    @DJSkinnyHo - Good Time Zoo Tour (Sims, Lazerbeak, & Cecil)
    9/17 All Ages @ Kilby Ct @6pm - 21+ @ Urban Lounge @10pm

    You may want to sign up for their mailing list, you will get notified of upcoming releases, presales, and shows: go to doomtree.net /events/ (scroll to the bottom of the page, until you see the Mailing List with

    the red box underneath it - click on that and you can sign up.)

    @NA6TY Yeah, I only started with Rebel Yellow, been checking out his False Hopes on bandcamp since you mentioned it, he is definitely right at the top with Dessa - his lyrics have incredible depth! I was so pumped when I found out about her - been wanting to go check out Soundset for a while now - that's actually how I found her - looking up some Atmosphere action on Soundset - been addicted ever since, nice to hear a female who has some intelligent lyrics!

  20. shatteredviolets

    @NA6TY Cool! Hell yea! Thanks, I did not know that. I love how they play off eachother too <3 I get lucky - they always do 2 shows when they come to SLC ^.^
