Jezebel Lyrics

Spider
Came up from the ground against all odds
Built a garden out of a grave
Thorns and food from a single seed
Grown without a single drop of rain
It’s made something new
And brought about a change
How will it conclude?
It’s taken over me
All the chrome outside has faded off
Wore down to golden, rusty steel
Set outside to bear the wind and rain
Waiting for a grinding wheel
It’s made something new
And brought about a change
How will it conclude?
It’s taken over meDayglo
Put a roof outside my head
Yeah, put a roof outside my head
No, no, no don’t go slowly outside my day
Yeah, put a roof outside my head
Dayglo…
Put a proof outside my head
Yeah, put a proof outside my head
No, no, no don’t go slowly outside my day
Yeah, put a proof upside my head
Dayglo… 

Bullocks
We started out before we saw the dawn
With only one of ten knew where we’re goin’
Won’t you say how far to, won’t you say how far?
Weary in the body to the bone
With every single step one more to own
Won’t you say how far to, won’t you say how far?
We acted out just like we’ve always done
But every single time we knew what’s to come
‘Til finally, finally the trail began to ease
Until it was, until it was finally big enough
For more than just me
Won’t you say how far to, won’t you say how far?

Corners
Alimentary to me the sun
Alimentary to me the moon
Adders in my sleep to me they sing
Such a comfort corners of a room
Take a long view make it seen
It’s everything that’s ever been
Sudden is the falling from a dream
Avalanches pulling up the trees
Nothing makes the weight of it subside
Turning in tornadoes in the sky
Take a long view make it seen
It’s everything that’s ever been
Gold and green a brand new point of view
Stolen from the ashes of a pyre
And the swords were hangin’ overhead by threads
And we danced on traps o’er pits that never end
Take a long view make it seen
It’s everything that’s ever been

Jezebel
Jezebel, the terrible angel, she rose in my brain
She’s followin’ me down
I rest upon it, the darker luggage
We’re rollin’ like a train
She’s followin’ me down
Followin’ me down, followin’ me down…
When I broke through for to gather, we’re flowin’ like a rain
She’s followin’ me down
I’ve got to stay ‘cause it matters
And that goes without saying
She’s followin’ me down
Followin’ me down, followin’ me down…

October
Too old to know if it’s real
That dried up stain on the wall
That room with tipped over chairs
And garbage strewn on the floors
With spray paint coverin’ the glass
To block out all the day’s sun
And just a candle of light
To do what needs to get done

Too stoned to call it a crime
The blade slipped down from the blood
When my head cleared I was here
Without a clue what I’d done
Now every bit of my strength
Is just a joke ‘til I die
Unless I come ‘cross a way
Or find some peace in the time

Precious
Woke up the smooth, uncut sun
Covering my body and all my wounds
Never had a rest in all my dreams
Wandered in the dark from room to room
I was feeling with my hands for shape of doors
Scuffling my feet on splintered floors
That’s the house of fear, burn it down
That’s the house of fear, burn it down…
Go ahead and say, go ahead and say…
I woke and I saw the length of days
Woke and I saw the wooded fields
Set upon a way I thought I knew
Set upon a wind that blew and blew
I was caught up in the air and saw the ground
Everybody walkin’ and runnin’ ‘round
That’s the house of fear, burn it down
That’s the house of fear, burn it down…
Go ahead and say, go ahead and say…

Dirty
It’s not gonna be as long they say
Not gonna be like a full, full day drive
When your legs are shakin’ like guitar strings
You’d give ‘em up if it would mean you’d be there
So you walk ten miles ‘til the city ends
There’s an old cafe’ where the waitress sings her sad songs
And the men sit quietly at the bar
They chew their food and listen for
An old love
When suddenly you’re through
When suddenly you’re done
When suddenly you wish
You’d taken what had come
The wind shifts cool and changes pace
Cuts through your clothes and makes you shake
The whole way home
And the song she sang stays in your mind
The way she moves and knew the weight of this world
All costs and crosses to be born
How lovers’ hearts are healed and torn
In this world
How it seems to be for the most of us
Just to keep on going is just enough
In this world
When suddenly you’re through

When suddenly you’re done

When suddenly you wish
You’d taken what had come
