i cannot get air

Mercurial Voice

i cannot breathe because you are a thief to my air.

inhaling at quarter capacity, my limbs are losing circulation.

and i, i lose my mobility.

i cannot get air, i cannot get air.

i cannot grow, i cannot grow.

you think the shadows you cast are awnings--

but i keep telling you- 

you are intercepting my sun.
