lyrics

Fill up your glass again
We both know how this ends
Right through the tourniquet
The lion’s blood runs red
Light casts upon these walls
The shadow of your tower
Lone fossils on display
The remnants of your power

Drunken drowning
Swimming in the ash
Of the dead words
Floating in your path
Still the same song
Stifled from within
It sings with you
If you’d just begin

I’ve seen that bluebird there
Hiding in your tree
Though it is beautiful
Its name you fear to speak

I’ve gathered precious words
And built for you a flower
Watch now just as before
It wilts within the hour
Lightly the feathers float
In circles ‘round the curtain
I’d rather let them hit
The ground remain uncertain

Drunken drowning
Swimming in the ash
Of the dead words
Floating in your path
Still the same song
Stifled from within
I'd sing with you
If you’d just begin

I’ve seen that bluebird there
Hiding in your tree
Though it is beautiful
Its name you fear to speak
I’ve seen that bluebird there
Hiding in your tree
And when you meet its gaze
Just tell me what you see
