parentheses lyrics – the antlers

“parentheses”

one broken wing,
soaring and suffering,
arm in a sling,
i don’t owe you anything.

i’m a bad absentee,
you know when i want to leave.
so close up your knees,
and i’ll close your parentheses.

i’m a bad amputee,
with no phantom memory.
so close up your knees,
and i’ll close your parentheses.
