Canary In a Coal Mine

Canary In a Coal Mine
Music: Grace McDunnough
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove & Grace McDunnough

Some rocks are dark and cold and hard to climb
So we blast away their souls
Descending into journeys through the very heart of stone
I was just a criminal
But it felt so natural
Breaking into you

A canary in a coal mine
Seeking any indication
A flicker on the flat screen
A gasp of desperation
There was so much silence
Too much silence without you
Without you

Some maps are big and bold and hard to fold,
So we just leave them on the dash
Content to look for landmarks in the wreckage and the ash
I know I was careless
But it happened so fast
Losing sight of you

A canary in a coal mine
Seeking any indication
A echo in the radar
A sympathy vibration
There is so much silence
Too much silence without you

And now I’m hear beside your window
Won’t you whisper invitation
Summon me to your side
With a spell of incantation
Am I even a temptation?
Baby, please don’t lie

To this canary in your coal mine
I need an indication
A scattered path of bread crumbs
Or celestial navigation
There is so much silence
Too much silence…

For this canary in the coal mine
I need your indication
A vision in the desert
A broken road back to salvation
There is so much silence
Too much silence
So much silence
Too much silence
Without you
Without you
Without you
