My eyes are threatening to open wide tonight (for the first time).
I try to cover them up with a pillow’s side.
Twilight, made up and hated,
So bright like, shards of blood and rust and light.
I might, might be swallowed by this night.

Your skin wrapped around your ankles
And limps (like perfect ribbon tied).
Your arms are, bare and white just like your eyes.
You stand there, and you almost seem surprised.
Why, why, why are you always so surprised?

What’s the worst part?
What’s the worst part?
In your eyes.
In your eyes.

Shut up, I’m tired of you talking,
So much, I just wanna hear you cry.
Cry cry cry.
I just wanna hear you cry.

What’s the worst part?
What’s the worst part?
In your eyes.
In your eyes.

    General CommentI think the whole album, The Convenience of Indecision, is one of the best albums ever.

    General CommentI don't know what this song means. I have never been too concerned about that though. I just love the lyrics, whatever they mean. I kind of like their ambiguity. I saw them a few years ago at The Talking Head in Baltimore and met the drummer playing pool before the show. I asked them to play this and they were a bit surprised at the request. I guess it's not generally part of their sets. But anyways, I got it dedicated to me ("This is for that girl behind the fat girl!").... Awesome concert, awesome band, awesome song.
