lyrics

PIGEON

Something startled the pigeons
Something silently broke
It injected their wings
With impossible winds
And magical dope

And it cooled off my cheek bones
And it danced on my face
And it’s killing me too
Dispelling the blue
With phenomenal pace

Take down my name
Take down my number
Wake up the dead
Resigned in their slumber
If you crown the days
I’ll re-knight the nights

And it whispered on beaches
And it lifted the swell
But the children all heard
These cheap and absurd
But these sweet decibels

And it pulled through the factories
And it rattled the police
And the paperwork twirled
Each document swirled
As each digit released

Take down my name
Take down my number
Wake up the dead
Resigned in their slumber
If you crown the days
I’ll re-knight the nights

If you crown the days
I’ll re-knight the nights
