lyrics

Horizontal stripes yea
Like a jailbird
Red skies at night
My life behind bars
Pour it on the rocks
I'm out to sea
Creature of the black cocoon
Some things never change
You can blow on the dice girl
Deal a dead man's hand
You can choose to pay the ransom
There's a tombstone either way
Grand pianos and anvils
Every time I look up
Pulling rabbits outta hats
I think I've lost my touch

Just a pile of bones
And fur

You disappeared
Into thin air
In a puff of smoke
Watch me choke
You can vanish from here
Without a trace
Gone for good
Except for the face

Behind the mirrors
Beyond the trapdoors
It's all illusion
I wanna know your true form
Pull back the curtain
Swallow the sword
It's all illusion
The magic words

You can saw my body if half
-Divide my enemies
You can tie me down to the railroad tracks
I can't escape these old restraints
Like a tree grown into fence
I lost the key
Down the drain that I'm circling

Behind the mirrors
Beyond the trapdoors
It's all illusion
I wanna know your true form
Pull back the curtain
Swallow the sword
It's all illusion
The magic words

Two oxblood marbles
Smash the sugar skull sphinx illusion
Body beyond mirrors
I'm a slave to her specter

My Radium girl's ghost-trapped silhouette shakes her coffin
Her Zig-zagged temple chewed, impaled, now unchained

My faraday cage failed to shield me from her lightning
That lucky horseshoe fell from the mast in her wake

Now i'm castaway with these Dead doves up my sleeves
Back behind blinds
Shadows stripe across me
