Antlers, The - Shiva Lyrics




Suddenly every machine stopped at once,
and the monitors beeped the last time.
Hundreds of thousands of hospital beds,
and all of them empty but mine.

Well, I was lying down with my feet in the air,
completely unable to move.
The bed was misshapen, and awkward and tall,
and clearly intended for you.

You checked yourself out when you put me to bed,
and tore that old band off your wrist.
But you came back to see me for a minute or less,
and left me your ring in my fist.
My hair started growing, my face became yours,
my femur was breaking in half.
The sensation was scissors and too much to scream,
so instead, I just started to laugh.

Suddenly every machine stopped at once,
and the monitors beeped the last time.
Hundreds of thousands of hospital beds,
and all of them empty but mine.

Antlers, The Shiva Comments
  1. A C

    shiva comes from the hebrew word for seven. shiva is the first seven days of mourning. in the jewish tradition, you pray, abstain from work and school and cooking and bathing. it's a time for being with your community and celebrating the person's life all together.

    This song is a nightmare I lived.

    Fun fact: In Hindu religion, _Shiva_ is the name of the deity that represents destruction.
