lyrics

There was a light that slithered in through the cracks in our room
And I tried to keep it out, made a patch of mud and blooms
But nothing seemed to work

It took me time to say of what I was so afraid
That there could be a flaw in the walls that we had framed
And there might be no cure

But I'd never been less sure
No, I've never been less sure

Because where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

There came a day when I could walk through the streets of my town
With my eyes up at the masses and even fall down
And nothing seemed to hurt

It took me time to look around and to be unafraid
To know that I could light the match, put my hand in the flame
And there would be no burn

And I'd never been more sure
No, I've never been more sure

Because where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

Rat-eyed and half-blind is no way to live life
With rat eyes and half-blind - well, it's no way to live life

Where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

Rat-eyed and half-blind is no way to live life
