Back to Water Curses lyrics

Water Curses

To be the motion actor two broken strings attracted
To groom my face in life and doom
Hesitate to throw a coin in, a wish could be a bad thing
My mouth is just a mush of drool

Standing on the bridge I wink at you from up high
And talking fish comes as she moves
I want to be like water and never need a doctor
And carve the earth without my tools
(Do it all)

All the things that I relate to, well like authors and painters
Transparent paper wings that float above me while I sleep
To make the room more natural
So we could die in it and die in it and die

The color after sunset you'd do anything to jinx it
It'll crush your sculpture just like a willow
He doesn't need a house, his shoes will walk for miles
There's a gypsy's face marked on my pill

I want to be like water and slip into your throat
And make you feel alive and good
I want to be like water and never have a doubt and
Reflect what is around my pool
(Do it all)

All the things that I relate to, well like authors and painters
Transparent paper wings that float above me while I sleep
To make the room more natural
So we could die in it and die in it and die

And all the dreams that I awake to read like ghostly paintings
And all the things I hate, I wish I didn't have to hate
To find a room that's natural
To live and die in it, live and die, live and die

I don't think you know just what you're doing
You pretend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving
Said I don't think I know exactly what I'm doing
But I tend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving

When you wake up from your snoozin' I'll tell you how to do it my way
I'll tell you what I'm doin', there's a knife up in the drawer
Anybody try to stop it and I'll find out where you're stompin'
And it's all about the days you spend, well I'll be at our home

I don't think you know just what you're doing
You pretend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving
Said I don't think I know exactly what I'm doing
But I tend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving

When you wake up from your snoozin' I'll tell you how to do it my way
And I'll tell you what I'm doin', there's a knife up in the drawer
Anybody try to stop it and I'll find out where you're stompin'
And it's all about the days you spend, well I'll be at our home

When you wake up from your snoozin' I'll tell you how to do it my way
And I'll tell you what I'm doin', there's a knife up in the drawer
Anybody try to stop it and I'll find out where you're stompin'
And it's all about the days you spend, well I'll be at our home

When you wake up from your snoozin' I'll tell you how to do it my way
And I'll tell you what I'm doin', there's a knife up in the drawer
Anybody try to stop it and I'll find out where you're stompin'
And it's all about the days you spend, well I'll be at our home
