Lyrics

Fireside

Verse 1:
on the back of your leg
there is a yellow scar
it is your future mark
you are a superstar

what’s in the depths of your chest
marks your great ambition
your concrete heart gives you
your magic condition

and on the top of your head
I see a shining sun
fire ignites my bed
my eyes divert and run

as though like ice on my face
your gaze delays
my charm
I long for hot escape
the burning of your arms

Chorus:
Fireside
I wanna be by your side

Verse 2:
from the back of your mouth
a cloudy shout screams out
your voice invades my skin
I suffer from your sound

as though on top of a lake
your words float on my mind
still as my heavy brain
fluid as passing time

Chorus

Bridge:
fireside
in lust and lonely
my heart aches
you choose her
you should be
By my side
to trust and hold me
my heart breaks
I know it should be me

like jupiter I wait
to orbit ’round your space
but my tongue hesitates
and hers is never late

well from the force of my brain
my hope pretend behave
my jaw it will not cave
my tongue it will not say

Fireside
I wanna be by your side

Insect Song

Sometimes I catch myself getting off
from the haze
It’s how I keep from running off
my hairy little legs

If I passed myself
I would laugh myself
‘Cause I am myself
Trying to cash myself in

Mention me

I’m straddling your tongue
landing in your lungs
chatting with your teeth
but you won’t notice me

I, I the one you shun
standing where you run
daring you to breathe
Mention me

Did I see your face, or was it mine?
Did I steal a base, is that your thigh?
Do I have a race, or am I lies?
Don’t you, too, have shape and not just eyes?

I’m taking off the hair from my arms
Will it appear like I’ve become large?
Stuck in my cough, my hairy charm
Cause I’ll try to pass me to show I belong

Optimistically
I hide behind my spine when I feel sane
I only know I’m breathing when my sadism feels shame

I’m crying on your fun
weeping at your puns
howling through your sleep
“Take me, please”
I’m, I’m the one you shun
smiling as you run
giggling at your knees

Mention me

You should share me, we should make babies
So that we can play with our unease

I’m taking off the hair from my arms
(if I take off my arms)
Will it appear like I’ve become large?
Stuck in my cough my hairy charm
Cause I’ll try to pass me to show I belong

Yes, I’m getting off
is that what it’s called?
(If I get off)
Oh it appears that I’ve become small
(Will I be small?)

You blow me off
is that what it’s called?
and you’ll try to pass me
‘Cause you, too, belong

 

Wait

Verse 1:
You wrapped yourself around me in my dreams
And the weight of your arms
Was just enough to wake me

See I get this feeling
Like these graves in my mind
Like this creature that’s feeding
Nakedness to the blind
You are misleading
Your heart away from mine
Like you can’t hear it pleading
To depart from your spine

Chorus:
Ooh baby baby baby
How can you just go away?
When you were telling me yeah you were telling me to stay?
Ooh baby baby baby
I don’t want you to explain
How you’re afraid of me yeah I just want you to remain

Isn’t my heart your main supplier?
Ain’t that what you told me all along?
If it’s too wet I’ll make it drier
But it’s not time to take it home
Isn’t it hot just like a fire?
Won’t it get cold if left alone?
If im too wet put me in dryer
But it’s not time to take me home

Verse 2:
In the dark it seems to me
The weight is what imagine it be
So I felt for the rhythm of your breath on my cheek
But you were a phantom and the weight was my need

Oh what a night…

CHORUS

You are misleading your heart away from mine like you can’t hear it pleading saying…

Let you stay
Let you stay
Let you stay
Let you stay
Why can’t you let you stay..
