lyrics

Came to see, but the sun won’t come to me
I won’t be the one who waits to speak
‘til the light brings something to say
at once or in piece-lings to parcel away
the fall of a slow-crawling, bellied sun
that drags on the ground in its legless way

Did you fall for a lamp below your feet?
Pretty things is all,
and pretty things won’t call
in the dark, won’t wait
while you sleep
I’d set them apart
before hooks and eyes 
are all that you seek
 
And I know what cuts you in two
(Two parts, too much
for all the good that they do)
You’d be surprised what a needle
and string can do to mend
these types, these types of things
Oh, what a needle
and string can do to mend
these types, these types of things

You: you walk a straight and narrow line
that I can never seem to find
or pick apart from either side

I: I think in circles, and it shows
I know everywhere they go
They only change their lines
enough to keep the play the same
A shrugging course
A shrub of sorts
that grew from what
I wouldn’t tame 

I only want the strangest things
but hoist the bells, and I will sing
A ribbon strung your heart along
It’s longer when the bow is gone

I know how to make a scene:
I’ll tell them each a different thing
and hope it all comes out
the moment that I clear the crowd
And tell me what you hope to bring to pass
by keeping me around
And tell me what you hope to bring to pass
by never being proud

You only want the simplest things
but hoist the bells, and I will sing
A ribbon strung your heart along
It’s longer when the bow is gone 

You ask me if I’ll see it through
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
The finer points have learned
to scrape themselves in turn
until they make
a square, unseemly way to crawl
a dull and hollowed-out escape
They only find it fit to call
when calling's all that I can take

You know the sound—some easy words
could twist & turn you out
You know I, you know I
will always track them down
You know the sound
You know the sound
You know the sound
and you know I, you know I
will always track it down
