a glass can only spill what it contain lyrics – mewithoutyou

a cat came drifting onto a porch from the outside cold
and with eyes closed, drinking warm milk from my bowl,
thought:
“n*body hears me (n*body hears me)
i crept in so soft!
and n*body sees me (n*body sees me)
as i watched six steps off.”

like the peac*cks wandering the walkways of the zoo
who have twice the autonomy the giraffes and tigers do
saying:
“no one can stop me (no one stop me)
no one clips my claws!
now everyone watches me (everyone watches me)
scale these outside walls!”

you took the puous and profane,
turned around the praise and blame,
said “a gl*ss can only spill what it contains!”
to the perpetually plain and the incurably inane
a gl*ss can only spill what it contains!

what new mystery is this?
what blessed backwardness??
the immeasurable one is held and does not resist!
struck by wicked words and foolish fists of senseless men
the almighty one does not defend!

i was halfway listening to what she thinks she knows
we’re like children dressing in our parents clothes saying:]

“n*body knows me (n*body knows me)
no one knows my name!
no, n*body knows me (n*body knows me)
n*body knows me… ”

i half-heartedly explained
but gave up peacefully ashamed
as a gl*ss can only spill what it contains!
we went from portugal and spain
and in her mind the entire time it rained!
a gl*ss can only spill what it contains!

what new mystery is this?
in overflowing emptiness!
the invisible is seen among the shadows and the mist,
before my doubting eyes,
the infinite appears this time.
the unquestionable is questioned
but makes no reply!

what new mystery is this? [x5]
“my rabbi”
my lips betray with a kiss

what new mystery is this?
