lyrics

i'm not going to crouch
until you take me
for how little i was
the new year's slinking
at my back to smack
its alligator jaws
that part a bit too wide
for comfort
in the curling fog

you've got me parked
back on the tarmac
for all to see
you've got your big jet plane
you've got your somewhere to be
well, i've got somewhere to be
yeah, i've got somewhere to be

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close,
close by
for cabin checks
you always count on them
to keep me alive

what bliss can curdle
on the surface
with each thought drowned
how many?
they all sound the same to me now

well did they fight?
i could see your head
it tipped to the side
as they would struggle
for weight, and then die
let me mourn them and hope
that i wasn't alone from the start
as i stood by a cave
with the tide rushing out
hearing words in the wind
that was caught in your mouth

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close
close by
for cabin checks
as if i needed them
to keep me alive

new is a fraud
you haven't cornered into
coming clean
i found your heart, miss scarlett!
part red, part green
i am no gentlemen
i've come to claim
the holly queen

you've quite the light
i let it hit me when
no other could
i think i'll keep the shadow
he has always stood
behind me where
i thought you would

what happens next?
i got my answer
when you brushed me aside
and kept me close
close by
for cabin checks
as if i needed them
to keep me alive
