lyrics

It’s been 1014 days since he broke your heart
Since panic overtook you and left you in the dark
Your books and education didn’t help you to fight
When dread crept in your bedroom and turned out the light

And there’s wolves in the forest and Serpents in the Deep
Noises in the attic, it’s getting hard to sleep
The grass it grows deep up to the wheels of your car
You look outside your window and don’t know who you are

Worry’s held you hostage, you’ve met with its demands
I’m standing on your front porch, with flowers in my hands
You’re peering through the curtains, will you let me in?
There’s a tiger in your lifeboat, baby, and you’re afraid to swim

And there’s wolves in the forest and Serpents in the Deep
Noises in the attic, it’s getting hard to sleep
The grass it grows deep up to the wheels of your car
You look outside your window and don’t know where you are

Did you sweep away all those years only to discover
That all those childhood fears never went away?
Does it break your heart to know
You’re not so clever, that you’ll never
Have the need to pray, have the need to pray?

So bar the windows and the doors as from an emerald ghost*
Sweep away the darkness like the burnt edge of your toast
Hide under the covers, we can be just friends
But doom’s electric moccasin* will find you in the end

And there’s wolves in the forest and Serpents in the Deep
Noises in the attic, it’s getting hard to sleep
The grass it grows deep up to the wheels of your car
You look outside your window and don’t know where you are


*Referenced from Emily Dickinson’s “There Came a Wind Like a Bugle”
