lyrics

She leaned back out of the light of day
into her private little world of numbers
Following her, desperate to soak her up, to please her
until the lockout comes

Queen of the mountain of rotten apples no one saw, and no one ever tasted
King of the dung heap, he seems so far, he seems so far away
So shrink boys, shrink away

I am full to the brim with Mister Bogeyman
He’s running all around in me today
He’s cutting my life into shredded plans
to cook up for his morning brunch buffet

He wants to get arrested by the sight of her on days when he’s annoyed
This dream ate him alive, nothing left behind of him at all
The glory backed off slow

I see you climbing towers and I see you waving proudly at the view
But I am down here right inside it watching you
Jump down I’ll be your trampoline

I’m cutting free of your leash Mister Bogeyman
And I’m cutting the leash into pieces
And I’ll tear you to pieces Mister Bogeyman
Eat what I need and leave the rest for the crows

Like a canary in a coalmine
Sings until she stops
Sings until she sings no more

Like a canary in a coalmine
Sings until she stops
Sings until she sings no more
