Andrew Bird - The Water Jet Cilice Lyrics




I knew this one girl
Drowned in her own curls
Candy colored swirls
That never seemed to end

I could not comprehend
Half what she said to me
So casually
All our tender ears would bend

Tales of ritual self-torture
She's making you abort your
Most carefully laid plans
To make a final stand
The rest threw up their hands
Scoreless victory for serendipity

Tales of ritual sef-torture
She's making you abort your
Most carefully laid plans
TO make a final stand
The rest threw up their hands
In scoreless victory for serendipity

  8. Lady Lirael

    I knew this one girl
    Drowned in her own curls
    Candy colored swirls
    That never seemed to end

    I could not comprehend
    Half what she said to me
    So casually
    All our tender ears would bend

    Tales of ritual self-torture
    She's making you abort your
    Most carefully laid plans
    To make a final stand
    Rest the world to hand
    Scoreless victory for serendipity

  12. Jaden Tiger

    Always did love this song, that image is a bit of a mind trick. Moves so slowly in parts I wasn't sure if it actually was or if I was just seeing things again.

  13. newwave808

    Your right, this sounds like it should be in a cowboy movie, well he is a folk artist.
