lyrics

I wanna hear the sound of your laughter
As it swirls across the room

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

You might think I’m too emotional sometimes but
At least I’m able to cry
You might say I’m just too out there for you but
Let me pry open your eyes

I wanna thrash I wanna fight like Motoko
I wanna hold my breath till all of me implodes
I wanna break up this primordial silence

Eternally naked insides on display

You look a little confused right now, like
You don’t get how I transformed
Myself into an elastic dreamer
Come on don’t be such a bore

I wanna thrash I wanna fight like Motoko
I wanna hold my breath till all of me implodes
I wanna break up this primordial silence

Eternally naked insides on display

Girl swallows nightingale
Careful now, Cosmic egg

I’m a flesh eater, shape shifter, daring you to
Wipe off that fake little grin
What makes you so very cautious out in the world
Why don’t you take off your skin

And when you do what will I find underneath it?
And when you do what will I find underneath it?
And when you do what will I find underneath it?

I smell the animal swimming inside
Open up spread your legs don’t let it die

Girl swallows nightingale
Careful now, Cosmic egg

Born!
Born!
Born!

Little bird
Little bird on a fiery field
I’ll swallow
I’ll swallow
You

Whole
Whole
Whole
Whole
