(these books were alive
they spoke to me.
the books have nothing to say!)

Inside ahead, it was a flood of white noise
Aside the chair, it shut down for four days
Green and brown are growing sweet (...)
You run the bar in through a picture of your time

The wind-up bird was her new muse (x3)
She made the frontpage bad news

Tell me a story inside
Lie if you like but make the details true in my mind
We need to feel absoluty wrapped in your glove
Lie back and listen
as I read you, my love.

The low mower side, sharpened his blades
And we all told you that it's good to be scared
I turned the page and start laughing at my friends
I looked into her eyes, so that we could pretend

The wind-up bird was her new muse
She made the frontpage bad news
The wind-up bird was her new muse
She made the frontpage bad news

(What is that over there?
That? That's a rocket chair)

We need to feel absoluty wrapped in your glove
Lie back and listen
as I read you, my love
Tell me a story inside
Lie if you like but make the details true in my mind
We need to feel absoluty wrapped in your glove
Lie back and listen
as I read you, my love.

    Song Comparisoni find these lyrics kind of hard to interpret. either they're pretty esoteric or i'm missing something obvious. still, if you haven't heard of it there's a book called the wind-up bird chronicle about a guy whose wife mysteriously disappears, and he spends much of the rest of the novel in the dark at the bottom of a well trying to break through a wall in his mind into a hotel room where a sinister figure is keeping his wife prisoner. or something. it's by a guy called haruki murakami and everything he writes is weird. the song could have something to do with that?
