Two headed boy
All floating in glass
The sun it is passed
Now it's blacker than black
I can hear as you tap on your jar
I am listening to hear where you are
I am listening to hear where you are

Two headed boy
Put on Sunday shoes
And dance round the room to accordion keys
With the needle that sings in your heart
Catching signals that sound in the dark
Catching signals that sound in the dark
We will take off our clothes
And they'll be placing fingers through the notches in your spine
And when all is breaking
Everything that you could keep aside
Now your eyes ain’t moving now
They just lay there in their climb

Two headed boy
With pulleys and weights
Creating a radio play just for two
In the parlor with a moon across her face
And through the music he sweetly displays
Silver speakers that sparkle all day
Made for his lover who's floating and choking with her hands across her face
And in the dark we will take off our clothes
And they'll be placing fingers through the notches in your spine
And when all is breaking
Everything that you could keep aside
Now your eyes ain’t moving now
They just lay there in their climb

Two headed boy
There is no reason to grieve
The world that you need is wrapped in gold silver sleeves
Left beneath Christmas trees in the snow
And I will take you and leave you alone
Watching spirals of white softly flow
Over your eyelids and all you did
Will wait until the point when you let go

    General CommentOkay Here it is... So Anne frank initially fancied a boy named Peter and then was separated from him then sent to the Annex... The boy she has intimate relations with in the Annex is named peter. But she is settling with him but she really is dreaming of the other Peter... she says so in her diary. And the line "your eyes ain't moving now they just lay there in the clouds" I feel is the Peter in the Annex talking to her or Jeff understanding that she has this idea of her intimacy through two boys named Peter ... hence "Two Headed Boy"
