lyrics

a high rise, i try to enjoy the view of towers that sway side to side
it’s high time that i let the sun inside to slice through the dust in the room
but oh, when you arrive, don’t read me my rights — i’ve done nothing

the birds fly to skyscraper suicides
the birds fly to skyscraper suicides

a full choir of kitchen appliances chime me a lullaby tune
i just might hide in the broom closet, mining the floorboards for clues
but oh, when you arrive, don’t read me my rights — i’ve done nothing

the birds fly to skyscraper suicides, spiraling gracefully down, down
but i spy my own reflection, and just in time

and all night, the wind in the marketplace wanders as stock prices climb
what kind of prisms were over our eyes that what’s backwards seems true?
but oh, when you arrive, don’t read me my rights — i’ve done nothing

the birds fly to skyscraper suicides, spiraling gracefully down, down
but i spy my own reflection, and just in time

we stepped on the cracks, we can’t get it back
we stepped on the cracks, we can’t get it back
we stepped on the cracks, we can’t get it back
but tell me it all will be alright, alright
promise we aren’t all uptight, uptight
tell me it all will be alright, alright
promise we aren’t all uptight, uptight

well we all fly to skyscraper suicides
we all fly to skyscraper suicides
we’re all uptight, uptight
