When you let off that shotgun in the heat
You blamed it on adrenalin
A shadow boxer in the street
But honey there are spectres everywhere
There's one sitting on your shoulder
Weighing more than you can bear
And it turns you

Flamethrower
Flamethrower
Like a seagull squawking in the street
Oh flamethrower
Flamethrower
I'm running out of tears with which to weep

You went and plunged that teaspoon in the sea
Tell me did the ocean miss it yet
Did it pause in its reverie?
While me I'm growing smaller by the day
Every time I raise my voice I draw a blank at what to say
But there's a light a window open
A weightlessness when you were talking
A bubbling brook that set up camp
And smothers me so sweetly

Oh flamethrower
Flamethrower
Like a seagull squawking in the street
Oh flamethrower
Flamethrower
I'm running out of tears with which to weep

Oh flamethrower
Flamethrower
Like a seagull squawking in the street
Oh flamethrower
Flamethrower
I'm running out of tears with which to weep
Oh
