lyrics

You’re afraid of anything that moves
That breathes too fast or thinks too near
Or listens carefully, or whispers nothing in your ear
It isn’t what you’re used to, and it isn’t what you think
It’s the person who you’re closest to who’ll drown you in the sink
I want to live inside your skin
I want to live inside your bones
But you don’t want no residents
You like to be alone ‘cause
You’re afraid of anything that moves
That breathes too fast or thinks too near
Or listens carefully, or whispers nothing in your ear
It isn’t what you’re used to, and it isn’t what you think
It’s the person who you’re closest to who’ll drown you in the sink
I want to live inside your skull
I want to live inside your head
But you don’t want me living with you
Unless it is in your bed
I want to live inside your skin
I want to live inside your bones
I want to live between your heart and soul
And call it home
The flesh covers the bone: and they put a mind in there
And sometimes a soul
But much more often a void I.O.U. note
It says, “I’m sorry kid: I took your soul, replaced it with
A photograph of nothing
Yeah you’re filled with nothing but your aching bones”

You’re afraid of anything that blinks or speaks or forms opinions
Most of all, afraid of dreams though strangely stoic when you’re in them
It isn’t what you’d like to be or where you want to go
But it’s the thought that counts, I guess.
Yeah, it’s the thought that counts you know.
You’re afraid of anything that moves,
That breathes too fast or thinks too near
Or listens carefully, or whispers nothing in your ear
It isn’t what you’re used to, and it isn’t what you think
At the end of this whole thing
It will be me who tries to drown you in the sink
