Rasputina Stumpside Lyrics

Last updated: 08/29/2006 11:00:00 AM

All that I have is this dull paring knife
Peeling potatoes for the rest of my life
Dirt floors bring dust so I hope for the best
I carry candles with pains in my chest

Face tied together with three times used string
Follow me see what I mean

Fixing a fencepost or feeding a cow
Two penny saltlick I never ask how
Animals like me though folks turn away
I like the pigeons I like what they say

Face tied together with three times used string
Follow me see what I mean

We come alone and leave alone and we look the horse in the mouth
We scratch the skin and break the bone and see birds migrating south.

By the side of the stump where she told us these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings.
Don't bother looking for what I've neglected to bring.
By the side of the stump where she told us these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings.
She's fallen farther than feathers that float in the wind.

I saw a wishing well down by the stream
I never understood what wishes mean
Just ask for nothing you get what you get.
I asked for something I've not got it yet.
Face tied together with three times used string
Follow me see what I mean

We come alone and leave alone and look the horse in the mouth
We scratch the skin and break the bone and see birds migrating south.

By the side of the stump where she told us these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings.
Don't bother looking for what I've neglected to bring.
By the side of the stump where she told us these things
If you hear a bell ring you get some wings.
She's fallen farther than feathers that float in the wind.
