lyrics

the icefloes are breaking out on to the living room rug
is there anybody under there, who's smothered there?
I'm wading knee deep to the kitchen
with the gushes of flood coming over me

the glacier's a tower that's melting, and the runoff is powering
the dim blue light casting a glow
so gloomingly slow
I'm floating out into the front yard
with balloons strung on nooses as bodyguards

hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
you're all gonna die


hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
you're all gonna die


the levers for setting the level of drainage are gone
the gears have sprung it's clear
we're soaked to the ears
our words bubbling out now to no one
a blinding white tidal wave eclipse of the sun

the angels are peeing a giddy warm greeting on everyone
that stings in my eyes and my nose
as conciousness slows
I'm getting my halo the hard way
'cause Poseidon's persuading me to stay in the sea

Hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
we're all gonna die

hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
we're all gonna die

by'n' by
I'm gonna bite somebody for sure
by'n' by
I'm gonna infect your skin with
a cool, clear cure

na na na na
na na na na
na na na na
na na na na
na na na na
na na na na
