Tiny Mussels

lyrics

There’s a thousand tiny mussels

Clinging to your body

You steely, hollow vessel

Floating through the party

And people are parting like the sea

When they see you

Gushing, just busting at the seams

The way it seems some people do



But have I got plans when it’s my turn

I’ll be warming my hands on the bridges I burn

Warming my hands on the bridges I burn

Warming my hands on the bridges I burn



And they bow like dandelions in your wake

I guess there ain’t no limit to the shit some people take

But it’s not exactly opaque what they see in you

Hoping scraps slide from your plate the minute you’re through

But I hope they’ll wait and wait and wait until they turn blue



But have I got plans when it’s my turn

I’ll be warming my hands on the bridges I burn

Warming my hands on the bridges I burn

Warming my hands on the bridges I burn



And just when I thought it was safe to go back in the water

I bust a vein

And the sharks are circling around me again

Splashing and laughing and pulling out all of the thread

The sky is falling

They’re trying to kill ginger

And I’m seeing red



There’s a thousand tiny mussels

Clinging to your body

You steely, hollow vessel

Floating through the party

And people are parting like the sea

(People are parting like the sea)

People are parting like the sea

(People are parting like the sea)

People are parting like the sea

When they see you
