lyrics

Tape my mouth just to break the spell of speaking things only time could tell
That I'd make a rope out of my own veins if I could do so in a modest way [1]

God rides gently on the winds[2] and we all have our favorite sins
And we all got needles in our toes from thinking things that no one knows

Feather oars[3] to the rocky moats!
Try to give a little speed to your rotting boat!
Testimony around the campfire!
I'm more than just a little tired
But baby, won't you hold my hand?
These demons seem to come from a foreign land [4]
and God knows I could use a little peace

Snuff the torch with some dirty clothes[5] cause the air in here feels a little close
We'll lay down flat on the carpet and comb for fixes in the lint

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, if only I could see how bright you are
Such a winding road through your crooked spine from the tip of your frame to the depths of your mind

Feather oars to the rocky moats!
Try to give a little speed to your rotting boat!
Testimony around the campfire!
We're more than just a little tired
But baby, won't you hold our hands?
These demons seem to come from a foreign land
and God knows we could use a little peace

Of mind!
Of mind!
Of mind!
Of mind!
