lyrics

Churchmouse, twitching nose
Whiskers piercing where they shouldn't be
Old house, dirty clothes [1]
Churchmouse, making sound
Gnawing painfully on the pew's feet
Singing praise with aching teeth

Delilah[2], I've got you locked inside my ribs
You'll be the last drink that I sip
Delilah, I think I've caught a morning sick
I didn't even need a kiss
Until now

Good God, pure and clean
Digging up our filthy things [3]
Being quiet, never seen [4]
Churchmouse, alive for weeks
Stuffing blessings in your cheeks
Frail frame can't take the heat

Delilah, I've got this pain deep in my chest
Don't think I'll ever find my nest
Delilah, I'm living on a quarter rest
Chaotic fevers in my head
Delilah, I left my heart up in the north [5]
I think to you I'm just a little short

1- Revelation 7:9
2- Judges 16:19-20
3- Romans 8:1-8
4- Friedrich Nietzche, The Gay Science
5- Wyoming
