I think there's something caught in my throat
It feels like a feather and a watered-down note
I've been a patron to hindsight when I sold it my head
I've been caught in the limelight with the dirty clothes shed [1]

I'm plucking arrows from my teeth [2]

You chose skin over saddle with the blinders on tight [3]
All blistered and rattled with a gasoline high
You caught whiff of brimstone[4] in the evening's wind
From the Cancer inside me setting fire to my skin

I'm plucking arrows from my teeth

1- Revelation 7:9
2- the singular meaning of this album, digested
3- blinders put over a horse's eyes to keep its attention fixed forward
4- sulfur
