lyrics

And for his dentists sake
He lays awake and contemplates
When his toothache made him late
And he lost his job
Out on a limb they’ll crawl
It bends it breaks and they all fall
Consequently your missed call
Won’t strengthen my jaw
Trying to explain without
All the words I can’t pronounce
I'll (chew/spit) them up and (spit/chew) them out
Did I say that right?
All those words you keep inside
Ride the bounds of shame and pride
Build them and choose them wise
Nothing will suffice
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)

When you’re not around
I’ll pull down my shroud
Say the words out loud
Making myself proud
Is this the closedown that’s been leading up
Open hallway but the door is shut
All the words turn into paper cuts
Maybe that’s just how they picture us
