Lyrics: 

I stifle all my time and let it squash
‘Cos I won’t let it drag out on my watch

And my sockets bloomed like thistles underhand
But mine were tied, I couldn’t take a scarlet swatch

Steal a deep breath, feel the ropes go slack
Knock your head back, knock your head back, throw your head back
Baring your throat, laughing hard, shrugging gently
You don’t deliver ‘cos you’ve never sent me

You’re one touch thin
‘Cos you refuse to rush in

I stifle every word I want to say
I can’t sound the syllables out anyway

And my fright was pressed against her silver spine
Illumination meaning we would be okay

Squeeze your eyes shut, something in your jaw cracks
Knock your head back, knock your head back, throw your head back
You always mean harm when you should’ve meant me
And you never quite deliver ‘cos you’ve never sent me

You’re one touch thin
‘Cos you refuse to rush in

I stifle all my time and let it squash
‘Cos I won’t let it drag out on my watch

And my sockets bloomed like thistles underhand
But mine were tied, I couldn’t take a scarlet swatch

Steal a deep breath, feel the ropes go slack
Knock your head back, knock your head back, throw your head back
Baring your throat, laughing hard, shrugging gently
You don’t deliver ‘cos you’ve never sent me

You’re one touch thin
‘Cos you refuse to rush in.

this is such a cool song. so light and airy, but. with a subtle ferocity your voice scampers through the melodies so delicately and decisive. i may be misunderstanding the lyric, but i take it that the one tp whom your words are directed has failed to make a romantic overture and you are tired of waiting.

Watchlisted you on the back of this song. Love the opaque but evocative imagery (sockets bloomed like thistles, stifled time, fright against silver spine). Also the delicate vocals, the rhythmic surprises. Beautiful, intriguing work.

So beautifully done. the breathy vocals really impact the words and emotion in the lyrics.
