"My Body" as written by and Lief Liebmann....
I can barely wait to see your face
Crack its weary mouth and let the words float into space
I have learned the Mississippi's pain
Every path I take ends up the same

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
But in this dark room oh my eyelashes are cymbal crashes

I can barely wait to leave this room
My nervous heart plays pizzicato, parts inside the tomb
And every empty note will seem to sling
Itself against the walls and make them sing
Oh, do do do do-do-do
Try to catch the truth and broken cells
Oh, do do do do-do-do
Try to catch the truth and you will fail

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
Well in this dark room oh my eyelashes are cymbal crashes

My body isn't quite a symphony
But if you would put your ears close to me
You'd find that in this dark room at night, oh
Well in this dark room oh my eyelashes are cymbal crashes
You can't hear me now
You can't hear me now
You can't hear me now
Do do do do-do-do
You can't hear me now
Do do do do-do-do
You can't hear me now

Do do do do-do-do (My body isn't quite...)
You can't hear me now
Do do do do-do-do (But if you would put your ears...)
You can't hear me now
Do do do do-do-do (You'd find in this dark room at night...)
(Well in this dark room oh my eyelashes...)
You can't hear me now
Do do do do-do-do (...are cymbal crashes)
You can't hear me now

    General CommentI think it's "quick staccato" instead of "pits ocado." Staccato is a musical term while "pits ocado" is... not.

    General CommentI don't really know how to interpret this song, but it is insanely beautiful, like all of their other songs. I especially love the lyric "My eyelashes are cymbal crashes." Beautiful.
