lyrics

There’s a portrait in the way, and it shakes all my thoughts so hard they fall into my dreams.
Grey stalks grow large in here, but do not grow into trees.
They talk so much in here, but will not talk of those fears
That plagued his tall tales until he wore his own tail too thin.

See him peak but do not heed the crimes.
The oblique tongue stiff and finally tied.

The seeds that shan’t be sowed are only swept away.
The deeds he had done first didn’t dampen disarray.

See him peak but do not heed the crimes.
Hear him speak but do not heed the lies.
Meet with shrieks and fits of rambling eyes.
The oblique tongue stiff and finally tied.
