"Swallow’s Tail" as written by and Chris Letcher....
I’m sorry.

I got spun out.

It was a shock to me.

I got run out.

He was a good boy,

No trouble.

He was a decoy,

A body double.

We’ve got no more plans,

Just emptying hands.

Send me a little word,

Please send me one word.

There is a velvet heart, all stuck with pins.

You know I love that heart, and every one of those pins.

The moon is paper thin, it sticks in my mind.

How does a simple pin become an assegai?

Now all these plans,

Just water through our hands.

Send me a little word,

Please send me one word.

Sometimes you add, sometimes you subtract,

You open a door but then turn your back.
