lyrics

You spoke it plain and speak it still
how once they moved across the sill
and left it stripped and fit to crack,
but now they’ve fallen further back

You count yourself a fragile hem
to hang until you're taken in
or sewn into a feathered throw,
forever sleeping, sheet to chin

You can swallow all you need to keep around
They will follow when the sun goes down
You were hollow when they made their rounds and, oh
you were hollow when the sun went down
you were hollow when the sun went down

Set out to drown the weeks, but now
they’re bound to drag their feet, face down
and fast asleep,
forgotten, how
they came to meet

From a curtain made of straw
and twine that cut the frosted air,
I know exactly what I saw--
I saw what simply wasn’t there

No name for what you want
You kept it safe, it kept too long,
tripped a vein and stepped upon
a worry I had left for gone

You can swallow all you need to keep around
They will follow when the sun goes down
You were hollow when they made their rounds, and oh,
you were hollow when the sun went down
you were hollow when the sun went down
