lyrics

when the summer broke off
and the film revealed sandy steps on the cellophane
a crepe paper love
staining the fingers dripping with orange rain

a black floundering moth
longed for the magnitude of the astral plane
a brown resin dove
spilled a sweet poison onto the picture frame

a poison of a thicker kind
granted me a sicker mind
last year I was a therapist
today I was a wicker man

it started out as a fine plan
didn't it

two slabs of concrete
a street in the middle
with ghosts boiling under the pavement

ooh

it started out as a fine plan
didn't it

and the mighty man of the sea
without vision or reflection
cast his salty sin down on me
to bring forth the resurrection

when a dance lit the flame
we saw the old clock stop through the window pane

a bitter refrain
sang through the fading waves of the other name

there lay the time entangled
crisp in the packaging
while you

dug for a crooked angle
right through the ship I built
for you

and the overcast shell breaks
and the sky turns

the ending was done
long 'fore the title
long 'fore the song was sung

destruct at all cost
filling a hope chest
with all the hopes we lost

hope lies in a deep dark well
reflecting a shaky sun
dive in to know me well
see what you leave before you run

your eyelids open
I can smell autumn
a little blue spark
lights up the dark

and the overcast shell breaks
and the sky turns amber

I like to break the thing I really like
just to see what it does to me

and I like to hurt the people I dearly love
just to see what it doest to me

why does it make me feel so good in my head
while it makes me sad
just to know I'm bad
