lyrics

you're the bluejay sitting on my windowsill
and i don't want to scare you but i probably will
cause i'm chasing rabbits with my hatchet swinging
honey, please don't fly away now, please keep
singing me your song

sing your song

if i kill those rabbits i'll come back outside
with a blood stained hatchet swinging at my side
walk into the river with you on my shoulder
am i getting stronger as i'm growing older?
i don't know

i hope so

but as the dust cloud settles and the wind dies down
i'm still chasing rabbits all across this town
like a wild-eyed animal afraid of everything i've
never seen
never seen

that i've never seen
is it all a dream?

like a blind man carrying a loaded gun
say i'll count to seven but i fire on one
all the bullets ricochet and riddle nothing
i've been running ragged
all this shadow boxing takes its toll
it takes a toll
