Coals

This song is by Kristin Hersh and appears on the album Crooked (2010).

Shrug off this wretched event
Stoic, detached, you relent
You wonder why

We crash but don't land

How a purring engine sputters
Like these coals that never cooled
Why we crash but don't land

You heated even the mist
Around this mossy existence
We never found
Cold, gray, calm, dead

It's how a purring engine sputters
Like these coals that never cooled
Why we crash but don't land

A ramble, a rant
A ramble, a rant
A fairy tale
Remorseless and serene

It's how a purring engine sputters
Like these coals that never cooled
Why we crash but don't land
