howling storms, sirens, hurricanes
at four in the morning
when i come down the hall, down the hallway
and 77 steps up the spiral staircase

oh where are we going and what do you want from me?
you say i need to sleep
and my bones are stretching.
someday it will get better,
until then it’s just gonna get worse.

when i grow up all the kings will come down from their thrones.
when i grow up the sirens will come and repair my bones.

i hear your voice in the faucets, down corridors
and the howls wash through the floors.
you say every time i try to turn i will fall.
see, we come running and see, we will show.
we’ll burn this house down while you’re tied to its walls
while everybody howls.

and when i grow up, yeah, when my bones have stopped growing,
when i grow up, yeah, i’ll be like a feather
and when i grow up, yeah, when my bones have stopped growing,
when i grow up, yeah, i’ll be a sledge hammer.
