lyrics

Something has come
and I am spilling over
an endless ceramic edge
Later some feet will come
to slip and fall on
part of me

And if I'm lucky
there'll be friends in the sewer this time
yeah if I'm happy
I'll see leaves in the currents tonight
Oh baby you are so big now
you play so sweetly in this hour
we have together

But how can I complain?
When I can always hear you laughing
as she spins me away
Y/ou'll ring with me
through this now saintly place
it's all I need to keep me
living until tomorrow

No-one slipped today
they let me stay
inside their home
So from in-between the floorboards
I will pray
for jealous rays to leave me alone

So I can sink and seep through
to where you're sleeping
yeah I like to keep kissing you
from the ceiling
until your father throws me out
in the morning he will feed me to the flowers

But how can I complain?
When I can always hear you laughing
as he spins me away
You'll ring with me
through this now saintly place
it's all I need to keep me
living until tomorrow

And when I join the others
I will tell them
of that time you called me mother
And we'll rejoice in tunnels
loud and grateful
Yeah, I know you were looking at her
but it was my neck
your clean arms held on to

But how can I complain?
Oh I am blessed to hear you laughing
as she spins me away
You ring with me
through this now saintly place
it's all I need to keep me
living until tomorrow
