Eyes are bright
Cold and clear
Can't somebody tell me what I'm missing here?

Your hands are hard
And the colors are clean
How do you believe what I just couldn't believe?

Your wings are wide
And your ghosts are good
How is it you never do the things that you should?

Delicate eyes
And a delicate touch
True that you're a looker but it don't mean that much

You're breaking the mold
But you're breaking my heart
Sometimes I get the feeling that you're playing the part

Blacks for blues
Hearts for heads
I used to look for diamonds in the blood that you bled

You dance for days
And your dreams are deep
Always seem to suffocate the brothers you keep

You’re taking your time
And I’m giving it too
You got the kind of appetite professionals do

Downtown sharing our bed
Shake hands
Shake heads
Down by the river we stood
Found out you never do us no good

The soul is strong
And the legs are lean
Can't somebody tell me what the pieces mean?

A ghost, a witch, a citizen
Built a bed and we tucked them in
In old Downtown by the river we stood
Found out you never do us no good


from Paper Ghosts, track released August 28, 2012

This is what might happen if Spoon, Wilco, and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club threw a pool party with Queens of the Stone Age scoring the water ballet. ... more
