Pull the Wires from the Walls

This song is by The Delgados and appears on the album Peloton (1998).

Creeping 'round my house at dawn
I'll keep my curtains closed
If you're feeling fond of feeling wronged
Fully clothed

For a second time you're on my mind
Planted on the stair
You forget I do not pay in kind
Kind's not there

For the eyes to
See through
All that I do

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times

Safe in knowledge; safe in college
I know all there is to know
To have never stepped outside this ring
Fools they flow

For the self-assured I have no cure
I only wish I was
As my entertaining thoughts grow fewer
Stills my cause

For the eyes to
See through
All that I do

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times

For the accent; for the day (don't walk just swim)
And the incidents, they'll happen and they'll happen anyway (it's gonna pass)
When you leave, you'll leave this way (one last drink)
You are far enough to be impressed
But not so far to be depressed
Drink you souvenirs and go your way

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times

For instance I don't have to try
I'm falling over all the right lines
We only have to leave this last
Resist all falling at the wrong times
