little creeper
in the shade
under my brain
in caterpillars
hundredth eye
under mushroom clouds
in the rain child
I wrote your name
in sparrow's blood
upon a madhouse wall
I drug my belly
'cross the riverbed of skulls
to sing y'all
a song that crawls
that song that crawls
that song that crawls
when I spoke your name
out loud again
I wondered when
you'd bring the rain back to me
I'm wondering had we ever
really lived at all
when they closed the coffin lid
on the tombstone kid
kissed my eyelids she did
a song that crawls
a song that crawls

    General CommentThis is what I hear:

    Little creeper in the shade under my brain
    It caterpillars, hundredth eye under mushroom clouds
    in the rain, child
    I wrote your name in sparrow's blood
    upon your madhouse wall
    I drug my belly 'cross the riverbed of skulls, yeah
    to sing y'all a song that crawls
    of that song that crawls
    of that song that crawls, yeah
    When I spoke your name out loud again,
    I wondered when you'd bring the rain back to me
    I'm wondering; had we ever really lived at all
    when they closed the coffin lid on the tombstone kid
    Kissed my eyelids, she did
    of that song that crawls
    of that song that crawls, yeah
    I wrote your name in sparrow's blood,
    drug my belly 'cross the riverbed of souls
    to sing y'all
    a song that crawls
