Nothing stirs in a fire besides your right to burn ....
We all have certain desires when will we ever learn....
My air has kept them in, thin lines so thin...
My air has kept them in, thin lines so thin....
I could spend my days caged and never chew through wire....
I have breath that won't rest until my chest retires....
There’s no halls in this house, will find a short way out....
The worn out motor and wheels outside are leaving now....
I paid the toll for your thoughts, a crash course for diamond rings....
I gave you more for the price, I gave you everything....
Finding new ways to use the tools I’ve always had....
Leaving hammer and nails inside your rusty shed....

Chorus 1-....

So heed the telephone sting within this stark request....
I’ve been forever blessed, and so forever blessed....
So keep your passionate pride inside your makers best....
Inside a lover rests, inside a stranger rests....
Lost and clenching her arm there born your mothers nerve....
So sick of sharpening knives they got what they deserve....
My air has kept them in, thin lines so thin....
My air has kept them in, thin lines so thin....
We bought the secret of strife from an older friend....
He sent a box with a bow with words to let him in....

Chorus 2-....

So heed the telephone sting within this stark request....
I’ve been forever blessed, and so forever blessed....
So keep your passionate pride inside your makers best....
Inside a lover rests, inside a stranger rests....
Found you in the brickyard you were a hundred birds....
Turning all the the concrete into spoken words....
Painted on the lake rocks where you tried your luck....
Shuffled to the west end where your feet got stuck....

Chorus 3-....

So heed the telephone sting within this stark request....
I’ve been forever blessed, and so forever blessed....
So keep your passionate pride inside your makers best....
Inside a lover rests, inside a stranger rests....

They sent the gifts with no meaning; we sent it back with a purpose....
You then stood beneath the wake, so your reflection could surface....
