a silver mirror that's flaking to black.
he sees more than he gives back.
and all his bad intentions turn to birds;
they flock to him like st. francis in his garden.
an audience that can't and won't react.
i feel their glassy eyes on my back.
they say, "we'll make your heart"
they say, "we'll make your heart"
they say, "we'll make your heart our home."

a blood disease that carries me.
a new unease that drives me
into your arms, calling your favors.
and all these bad intentions turn to birds,
and they flock to me like devils on my shoulders.
an audience that chooses not to react.
you feel my glassy eyes on your back.

no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart
no, i'll make your heart my home.

    General CommentHmm.. no one has posted on this. This song seems pretty straightforward, but some has some beautiful simiies that I think are so original, unique, and basically perfect (I don't know how else to put this); I'm listening and I'm like "YES! That's EXACTLY how it is..." For example the line "an audience that can't and won't react"/"chooses not to react" could mean a number of things, but it always comes to mind when I'm engaged in a conversation w/ someone, and I get enthusiastic/passionate/excited about an idea or anything, and the other person will just not react. It seems so strange. For example, when someone says "That sounds great. I'm so excited," in a monotone voice and without exclamation points, it just seems so unnnatural and incongruous. I know this isn't the main point of the song (or perhaps not even an auxiliary point), but it really resonates with me.
    The image/analogy I really like is "all his bad intentions turn to birds, they flock to him, like st francis in his garden." St Francis is the patron saint of animals (primarily, among other things) and there's a story about how he was in the woods filled with birds and preached to them and blessed them. You can also see statues of his likeness in many gardens. I think this comparison is just amazing, like the quantity and affinity for the main character's "bad intentions" to plague him is akin to the birds toward St Francis.
