let me get you an easier pill to swallow, swallowtail
sit and listen to the stories i tell you about the things that got you here
‘cause i’m scared like you, my friend
oh, but i’ve made plans to forget

so pour me a glass, please
pour me some glass
so pour me a glass, please
pour me some glass

dear, do you need some water to wash that down?
dear, do you need some water to wash down the unwanted fear?

and you’ll pour out your glass
give me all your glass
so pour me a glass, please
pour me some glass

when and where the green grass seems not to grow
she’s somewhere buried beneath all that snow
it feels like fire and ice, fire and ice
all the time, all the time

busted skulls and broken hinges of the ribbed cage
all them moths
all them butterflies
spill out on the sidewalk
hey maybe i’ll catch one for you in a jar

my swallowtail, i’ll swallow you down like my favorite pill

when and where the stars are wrapped up in winter’s glow
he’s somewhere putting on some kind of show
it feels like fire and ice, fire and ice
all the time, all the time

busted skulls and broken hinges of the ribbed cage
all them moths
all them butterflies
spill out on the sidewalk
hey maybe i’ll catch one for you in a jar

so swallowtail, swallow me down like i’m your favorite pill

let me give you an easier pill to swallow, swallowtail...
