He trembles in the bitter wind
Until it's time for us to speak
Whilst others here are sleeping sound
I'll slip away by floorboard creak

Upon the hill he'll hear my secrets
Shock the colors to bleach inside
Whilst others there are sleeping sound
Just we two will confide

Listen to his body moan
Make a wish and send us home
To spin the gold and silver stitches
We can turn his rags to riches

With frosty Jack on fingernail
Through shoe black smile he'll tell a tale
Come whisper through your lips of straw
A moment torn forever more

Listen to his body moan
Make a wish to send us home
To spin the gold and silver stitches
We can turn his rags to riches

My so called friends say you're not alive
I'll bake their bones for telling lies
Then pull the pastry from the pie
And pour the gravy in their eye

Listen to his body moan
Make a wish and send us home
To spin the gold and silver stitches
We can turn his rags to riches

    General CommentI guess it's about a crazy person that speaks to a Scarecrow at night and believes he's a living being.

    General CommentI think it's about the way children feel when they are forced to grow up and told that the world of make believe is false and the internal upset that it causes for them.

    General CommentDeeply disturbed individual makes midnight visit to scarecrow who tells them things. Not happy at all that their friends all think they're cracked and threatens to bake them into a pie, Titus Andronicus style...

    Song MeaningThere are drug references riddled throughout this song. Meeting someone in secrecy ("upon the hill, he'll tell his secrets.")

    "to spin the gold and silver stitches." Drug addicts often refer to their drug of choice like gems.

    "My so-called friends say you're not alive." Could mean that no one believes her when she is telling them that said person needs help.

    "Shock the colors to bleach inside" - seems pretty evident.
