Lyrics

Another little mystery to solve
That raised eyebrow, the hint of smirk
What did you just say?
Just mutter under you breath
So I fix another coffee and stew in the kitchen
A blinding headache taking hold

Shut it down, block it out
Store it up, fill the hole
Suck it up, spit it out
Spread the word, cleanse your soul

And you sit there benign
Your little arrows found their mark
Butter wouldn’t melt in your mouth
So the dinner’s made with bitterness and bile
Just dead meat on the table

Shut it down, block it out
Store it up, fill the hole
Suck it up, spit it out
Spread the word, cleanse your soul

I slam the door on my way out
To your silent smile
The cold frost fills my lungs
Fills my throat which is burning, by the way

I walk and I walk
Through the dark
A pulse pounding in my temple
I’m not a violent man but…

Shut it down…
