lyrics

Jaws of a Friend

All you've got to show for your lifetime of safety is regret
The street lamps that light your way home are the faces of angels
disguised as a threat
The concrete that strangles the earth beneath comforts your toes
But the wildness that raps on your window at night
Won't cease its compulsion to grow.

Advice when you're hearing those voices again
The best place to hide is the jaws of a friend
And once you're inside them
You'll peek through their teeth
And all their opinions become your beliefs.

The egg in the nest of your chimney's hatching a beast
With talon and wing it threatens to tear
The skin from your mask while you sleep
And all of the mantras you mindlessly parrot in vain
Are said to a god that celebrates torture
And secretly laughs at your pain.

Advice when you're hearing those voices again
The best place to hide is the jaws of a friend
And once you're inside them
You'll peek through their teeth
And all their opinions become your beliefs.
