lyrics

Winding

With painted claws extending to the ground
in a hoops of smoke I was crowned
but I left that ring
it was just another thing to carry around
(write first and pencil me in)
carry around yeauh

So I kept my tongue at the backa my teeth and SHARP
and I opened her darkest sayings upon the harp
and I slid like orange rain down the middle of her street
The police came at daybreak but didn't catch my speed
And she was my silent drummer, how she wound me up so tight
In my days of inward singing I was underneath the night

And if a saint were to ask her, "Is he one of ours?"
Pausing for the king of the hours
she’d think of me standing straight
unable to wait,
she’d answer then with her powers
and speaking in codes
(write first and pencil me in)
she’d say
"He’s yours and mine
and we’ll pour him like wine on winding Spanish roads"

————————————

Sleep

Sleep, love,
deep in a world
breath of a panther in mouth of a girl

Sleep off hate as it gleams
Planets are winding to dizzy your dreams
(write first and pencil me in)
dizzy your dreams yeauh

————————————

Thrills

So I keep my tongue at the backa my teeth and SHARP
And I open her darkest sayings upon the harp
and I'm talkin' like Tom Sawyer and I'm older than the hills
like a deep-fried southern lawyer like stentorian big thrills
But they took me to confession and I took notes in code
So the good girls wouldn't get it, so the good girls wouldn't know
that

Sometimes when I skate, man I skate on the edge
And then, should I die, I shall die as a legend
I'd die intestate, though I may pick and choose
I lost my best skates, but I don't mind these shoes yeauh
Well who are you
to say how my feet should move?
Just what are you trying to prove?
Get out of my view

With painted claws extending to the ground
in a hoop of smoke I was crowned
but I left that ring
it was just another thing to carry around
(write first and pencil me in)
carry around yeauh
