They all scare me // the animals
We’re all clinging // to the chaos and moss
The joy of hiding // hunter in camouflage
The trees fall // and do we hear it at all

The light is failing // we burn the stars
They're all wrong and // they don’t come when we call
Moving in silence // creep up on us
Stop all the crawling // because we’re building a wall

They won't find us // we're animals
We feed on lichens // we nestle under the rocks
It's all decaying // below the poppy fields
The young are old // and the old are the young

Immortal staging // stuck in the liminal
Licking old wounds // in the steel and glass
Living in silence // eating all your kind
Give up your preachers // it's just a thing of the past

They don't know how
—they're all animals now
And they won't go

Blood Wine or Honey Hong Kong

Blood Wine or Honey have honed their mantric afro-bitten electro-psychedelia in the industrial warehouses of Hong Kong, surrounded by the scent of dried fish, the throb of heavy machinery, and the torrid humidity and heat of the South China Sea
