1. The Wires

From the recording Welcome to the Ether


Lying awake
With your fingers laced around behind your head
Under a little rectangular raincloud
And you’re tethered to the bed

Shut so tight
You got shimmery patterns blooming in your eyes but
That’s alright
This is how it looks when you try to uncouple the wires
Scanning the place for suspicious equipment
You know, like you do
Honest as long
As you know nobody’s listening to you
Laying your bets on red
To keep your reputation in the black
Paying with twenties 
Cos that folding money doesn’t track 
On the wires
Scramble the code again
And whisper it into the subway grating
Or find what you’re scared to say 
And sing it straight into the wires
