We are your captive audience

Harbouring truths we confess

Only to damp, dark sins

And oh we’re so open handed

We command the English language

To paint your mountain face



There’s lights in the sky above us

Your chorus of clouds and rusted violins

Haunts like little endings

Waiting for you there



If you should cower



Do you think you are the spider

Do you think these hands are bound together

In this web of words

But atop the highest snow peak

This tower of tower’s cogs squeak

Making your blood turn grey



(Chorus)

And she sits atop the tower

Your warring of words gets smashed into bits

Haunts like little engines

Waiting for you there



If you should cower

I am your tower tower

I’ll be your outer shell



I watch your thoughts

Crumble through your teeth

Sharp and white

Inside dark sheets

Lies one fierce girl

Filled with bees and fire

How her black eyes look like mine



When my mouth runs out of stories

And these eyelids slide

Build me a stone tower

Where my boy can lie soundlessly
