lyrics

The moon was unsteady. The woods looked so dark and oh so deep. Please don’t go out there. But she was wondering. What she wants, she wants. She pushes me so. What she wants, she wants. I just follow. What did she see close? (Never tell.) Yes she saw it close. (When she fell.) When she saw it close. Catch a glacier by the tail. When it hollers, hoist your sail. Melt away into the sea. Schools of glowfish rescue me. I know how to do this. (It would be better.) I know how to disappear. (As if you’d ever.) I’ve been on this job now, seems like a thousand years. I won't even remember the color of your shirt. Just that we were spinning. And I was wondering. I was wondering. I know how it’s done: disappear. I’ve been on this job for a thousand years. I know how it’s done: disappear.
