I will shape myself into your pocket
Invisible
Do what you want
Do what you want

I will shrink and I will disappear
I will slip into the groove and cut me off
And cut me off

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
And now I'll set you free
I'll set you free

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I'll set you free
I'll set you free

Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is
I can't kick your habit
Just to fill your fast ballooning head
Listen to your heart

We will shrink and we'll be quiet as mice
And while the cat is away
Do what we want
Do what we want

There's an empty space inside my heart
Where the weeds take root
So now I'll set you free
I'll set you free

'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
Just to see what if
Just to see what is
The bird lights float into my room

Slowly we unfurl
As lotus flowers
'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick
I dance around the pit
The darkness is beneath
I can't kick your habit
Just to feed your fast ballooning head
Listen to your heart

    My InterpretationI have a very different interpretation to most of the others posted here. To me this is a song about escaping from a controlling relationship.

    "I will shape myself into your pocket / Invisible / Do what you want" - he starts off doing what the other person wants to make the relationship work.

    "I will shrink and I will disappear / I will slip into the groove and cut me off" - he is sublimating his own identity to what the other person wants him to be.

    "There's an empty space inside my heart / Where the weeds take root / And now I'll set you free" - the empty space is where his love for the other person used to be. The weeds are the slowly creeping and growing doubt about the relationship, and he is beginning to want to get out of the relationship.

    "Slowly we unfurl / As lotus flowers" - he is beginning to understand who he is despite the control of the other person and blossom into his true self.

    "'Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick / Just to see what if / Just to see what is" - he is becoming selfish, wanting everything despite the other person.

    "I can't kick your habit / Just to fill your fast ballooning head" - this is a confusing line. I think he means he doesn't want to satisfy the other person's ego.

    "We will shrink and we'll be quiet as mice / And while the cat is away / Do what we want" - as the relationship breaks down and they attend to each other less, they drift away and start to explore other options (perhaps an affair).
