moth’s wings lyrics – passion pit

moth’s wings

dear friend, as you know
your flowers are withering
your mother’s gone insane
your leaves have drifted away
but the clouds are clearing up
and i’ve come reveling
burning incandescently
like a b*st*rd on the burning sea

you’re just like your father
buried deep under the water
you’re resting on your laurels
and stepping on my toes
whose side are you on?
what side is this anyway?
put down your sword and crown
come lay with me on the ground

you come beating like moth’s wings
spastic and violently
whipping me into a storm
shaking me down to the core
but you run away from me
and you left me shimmering
like diamond wedding rings
spinning dizzily down on the floor

you’re just like your father
buried deep under the water
you’re resting on your laurels
and stepping on my toes
whose side are you on?
what side is this anyway?
put down your sword and crown
come lay with me on the ground
