Ballroom Thieves, The - Canary Lyrics




I thought I knew the wind I listened in
This smoke and clay they wore me thin
We're spinning on a syllable that has the goal to bring the whole world down

We tape it up and wear it out
We let the blood soak through our calloused skin
Take all of my lies and try to tie the knots that I can't do without

When I was a bird I could see where the moon had turned
The sky was alive and this wire of mine burned
And lying with these words the whole damn time

When did my tongue begin to slow me
Let me take my time while keeping pace
We break it down, the right and wrong, the thorns and roots are grew before I knew you

Witness all these pretty colors learning to be
Hey, this ain't no race
Hear me through this dying day and all the words that were not meant for you

When I was a bird I could see where the moon had turned
The sky was alive and this wire of mine burned
And sleeping with the truth the whole damn time

I would kill for a night in the pines or a dawn at sea
I would kill for a night in the pines or a dawn at sea
I would kill for a night in the pines or a dawn at sea

When I was a bird I could see where the moon had turned
The sky was alive and this wire of mine burned
And sleeping next to you the whole damn time
