You cannot protect
That which you cannot control
I lit a candle for you
But somebody blew it out

He comes to me in my dreams
And tells me that he's alright
That he's just been hiding out
Somewhere there is no light

Oh yeah, that'd be nice
And if you took it back
I wouldn't feel so uncertain
I wouldn't feel so uncertain

That when your body hit the earth
It opened up and swallowed you
She kept you safe in her hot center
And always tucked you in at night

And when you woke up nervous
She said, "Baby you're inside of me
You're safe inside my orange womb
There's no reason to worry

They bought him magnets
To form into different shapes
Small spheres of metal
Always carefully composed

He's making hexagons
He's making perfect squares
He's making triangles
He's making cylinders

And in the junkyard
A flock of robot screams
I give you murders
I grab it from his dreams

They’re laying eggs now
They’re hatching fever spells
And he eats them slowly
His blood is thinner now

Things slip sometimes
Things slip sometimes
Things slip sometimes

    My InterpretationI don't really understand this song in the way I think it was intended.

    I parted ways with someone and went through a really dark phase. In my time in isolation I learned CNC machining, (making perfect circles and shapes with screaming robots). It prompted me to contact them and let them know I was ok, once I made it to the other side. : )
