I just called to say

I got your message the other day
Passed it down the alleyway
Slid inside the cracks in the wall

I just called to say
I just called to say

I got your message the other day
I found a nest under my sleeve
Covered it and scratched it till I bled

Was it all a plan for me
To bury skins under the seam?
Was it all a plan for me
To bury skins under the seam?
Was it all a plan for me?

I just called to say
I just called to say
I just called to say
I just called to say

I whisper in the wind
And you're a goddamn tree
I'm gonna blow your leaves
I'm gonna blow your leaves

    General CommentIt feels like the start of something infectious. The message is a catalyst, and everything grows out of it.
    Lines that suggest itchy skin or skin trapped under stitches, hint at disease. The last bit sounds pretty violent, but it is not without its charm. If you see the wind as an invisible attacker, and a tree as a large stationary target, (It is incredibly difficult to defend yourself from all sickness) then it kinda makes sense, but that's just me.
