The Orchids – Califone

When all the numbers swim together
And all the shadows settle
When doors forced open shut again a flytrap and a petal
My eyes burn and claws rush in to fill them
And in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so clear I realize
And here at last I have my eyes

When all the figures sound retreat
The soft skin starts to shrivel
When dreams made real become less sweet
The orchid and the metal
My sex turns and claws rush in to fill them
And in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so pure I can arrive without the fear of seeing my eyes

When all the characters full size
And every moon is level
When all the spirits burn in lies
As center grief by steel
My eyes burn and claws rush in to fill them
And in the morning after the night
I fall in love with the light
It is so clear I realize and now at last I have my eyes
