lyrics

Watching ants haul away remains of a butterfly
Heave-ho, down the hole
Checking flight plans
Mind the trim and the breeze
A little slip from the trees means the lion’s den

Harder than concrete
Softer than moonlight
Haunted by the moment I held in your eyes
I trade every day for that glimpse again
From the floor of that well
A shell

Underneath sleek skin moving parts whirl away
The nightmare streaks by the window there
Jettison cargo into vapor trail white
Cross the point where the blue turns to outta sight

Harder than concrete
Softer than moonlight
Haunted by the moment I held in your eyes
I trade every day for that glimpse again
From the floor of that well
A shell
