Straight Lines

Lyrics

There's a whisper and a shotgun lying in bed 
So wrap your heart up in your sheets and surrender the dead 
Nine muses sing follow me 
To where freedom is a curse and sleep is a gift 

You want to wake up where waves turn the salt into sand 
Where the moon touches the ocean and dies in your hands 
The Siren's daughters agree 
The tides, your tears, and the sea 

But that is trick 
And you want to know what to believe 
Believe this is the best of all times 
And time is just as good as it gets 
I'll give into you straight lines 

It's my one best guess what makes me tick 
It's my one best guess, my mother's gift 
It's my one... life 
It's my one... 

But it's probably a trick 
And you want to know how to feel 
Feel for every peace you can find 
Because fine is good enough for me 
And you want to know what to believe 
Believe this is the best of all times 
When there's nothing left to regret 
I'll give into you straight lines 

Tie my hands tightly, leaves and vines 
Bind the spring until the minutes unwind 
Out of sequence, anti-clockwise 
Unafraid, I finally made up my mind 

It's my one best guess 
It's my one best guess 
As good as it gets
