What you deny only multiplies readily on the skin.
No baby, no you don't lie
'Cause you don't know where the truth begins.
Captain's up in his tower,
Got his guitar hangin' up on the wall.
Thinks if he sleeps long enough,
He gonna hear that ancient siren call.

You said loneliness has the soul of a spider
And, oh, you're gonna take it to your grave.
Oh I know a little something,
And I know this,
It ain't ever gonna work out that way.
You want to build a web,
Strong enough to contain all your wild desires,
But in the end those flames
Are only gonna burn that much higher.

Come ride the broken buses with me
Through those teaming streets.
Come walk the crumbling neighbourhoods,
Let's find out who we'll meet.
Maybe you'll understand,
We don't gotta have no plan.
Stop looking at empty windows
Like the lines on the palm of your hand.

You said loneliness has the soul of a spider
And, oh, you're gonna take it to your grave.
Oh, but I know a little something,
I know this,
It ain't ever gonna work out that way.
You want to build a web,
Strong enough to contain all your wild desires,
But in the end those flames
Are only gonna burn that much higher.

Your jewelry show,
It was the walk of the whole town.
Prime Minister's and President's,
They were all coming around.
I saw you in the corner,
And your eyes they were so red.
I knew that you wished you could be
Anywhere else instead.

You said loneliness has the soul of a spider
And oh you're gonna take it to your grave.
Well I know a little something,
Yeah, I know this,
It ain't ever gonna work out that way.
You want to build a web
Strong enough to contain all your wild desires,
But in the end those flames
Are only gonna burn that much higher.
