lyrics

I fell of my bike – both my knees were bleeding – on my birthday night. I laughingly limped home. The streets all look alike. Their pattern is misleading. Sing a soft goodnight to gardens I've outgrown. And still I am wrapped in their embrace....
There's a cross-eyed bird perching on my window. Flapping crooked wings and pecking at the pane. Bird, you look absurd. Ruffled by the wind, oh.. all those songs you sing are driving me insane. I shoo the bird away but only louder does it bray: Won't you let me in. I will keep you company. Let my feathers muffle your unrest. Treat me as a friend, knowing I'm your enemy, knowing I'm the one that knows you best.
So catch the little thing, snatch the little creature! Cup your hand around and snaps its tiny neck! And bicycle bell, ring a hymn to my defeature as I'm leaving town, determined never to look back. Kill the wicked witch, shove her in the oven! Eat your enemies and cast your ghosts to stone! Do the final stitch – a fabric finely woven will cover your unease, protect your frozen bones, will keep those shivering guts inside, will offer the perfect place to hide... Won't you let me out. I don't crave your company! It will only nurture my unrest. But treat me as a friend, knowing I'm your enemy, knowing I'm the one that knows you best.
