lyrics

You with a lier you can't play
Feeble shepherd at your gate
While the lions taunt your flock
You lie in wait

Oh but you move me yes you do
I can feel you winding through
Beneath the threads beneath my skin
Molten metal boiling blood

Oh I can be patient yes I can
I can bury it a while now
And in the spring when the hemlock peaks its way out
You will be gone

Verse II:
You are the chalk against the slate
The thistles waiting at the gate
Clinging to the skin of every movement

It's hard to fathom hard to stand
How you poison your own hand
If only to extend it in a wave

Over all I dream I dream of it yes I do
Fallout far from you below the ground
And if I finally dig my way out you will be gone

Ah I can be patient yes I can
I can bury it a while now
And in the spring when the hemlock peaks its way out
You will be gone

AHHH!
