The Hanged Man

Am I capsized when you see me through your eyes?
One flame screaming all through my insides
Am I hypnotized by your spanish fly?
Two girls going under the knife

I see a window opening before me
But I’d rather stay right here in your valley

Angel says, “Stay here in bed
And dream about the breeze.”
Mother I can’t sleep tonight
There’s monsters in the trees
Trying to kill me
Trying to hang themselves with my destiny

Am I mesmerized by the quiet of the night?
Doctors injecting calm into my insides
Am I prophecized through the walls of time?
Those girls screaming out for their lives

I see a window opening before me
But I’d rather stay right here in your valley

Angel says, “Stay here in bed
And dream about the breeze.”
Mother I can’t sleep tonight
There’s monsters in the trees
Trying to kill me
Trying to hang themselves with my destiny

I will re-enter the world when I have the answer
Withdrawn and alone, I wait
You can dream me into a silver lining
After the winds have gone away

And I want nothing more than to lie inside your valley
Warm and safe beneath the waves of your light
Give me a lifeboat so I can swim past your doors
And pull myself up off the floor
