about

After visiting Rumney, New Hampshire for a weekend, my body was covered in mosquito bites.

lyrics

Standing on a hill
Way above it all
It's so dark
The further you go

Standing on a hill
Grass itching my bones
I am small
and so tall

(oooh ooh)

The houses are like blocks
Ladybugs are little cars
Roads unwind
like rivers bend

Let mosquitoes linger on
Let mosquitoes linger on
Let mosquitoes linger on
my skin

Standing on a hill
Way above it all
Breathe the air
From someone's lung

Kingdoms fall
These pines have burned
These mountains walk
On melting rock

It's so easy to forget
It's so easy to forget
Let mosquitos linger
on my skin

Even kingdoms fall and rise
All we love will meet demise
Let mosquitoes linger on my skin
Let mosquitoes linger on my skin
