lyrics

Giant Skeleton House
In the key of G

There's no shelter in the sockets of this empty face
There ain’t a bone in the frame that you can trust
And that hollow place in the rib cage?
That's where the heart once was

There are birds in these bones and they’re singin’
A warnin’ as the day turns to dusk
There's no reason to glance at the vacant sky
Overcast where the heart once was

Blood blood in the bottle
Wine wine in the vein
Pour pour that secret
Down down down the drain

The harmony was true but it's forgotten
As if it was never sung
And the silence hangin’ in the rib cage?
That's where the song once hung


You can still feel a tremor in the collarbone
The shoulder blade seems to buzz
And the echo you hear at the keyhole?
That's just what the music does

Blood blood in the bottle
Wine wine in the vein
Pour pour that secret
Down down down the drain
