lyrics

My thoughts like birds
Are circling around my words
And they're sticking to my lips like dirt
Exploding out like fireworks
In awkward spurts
And all we are
Are pieces I have caught
From your holy bits of afterthought
I've improsoned them like fifty-odd
Fireflies caught in a jar
And we are unavailable
Because our chests are full of all we know
But it is unraveling, this spider web we are weaving
All of the hurt
Coursing through your living limbs
Your shoulders, back, and arms and shins
Could hold you down and keep you in
The routing place you're living in
But if I'm right
I see I blinding light
Blasting from your body parts
Your eyes and mouth and hands and heart
Your arms apart, there goes my heart
And we are unavailable
Because our chests are full of all we know
But it is unraveling, this spider web we are weaving
And we've ensnared in sticky string all the people that we love
But it is unraveling this spider web we are weaving
