Track Name: Birds of Genet (Leaving Through Ceilings)
my heart's in my hand
and my hand is pierced, and my hand's in
the bag, and the bag
is shut, and my heart is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

my hand's in my heart
and my heart is pierced, and my heart's in
my hand, and my hand
is shut, and my heart, is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

birds of prey, birds of genet
birds of genet, birds of prey
