Nest of Bones

lyrics

birdy step away from me
birdy fly away home
birdy step away from me
birdy fly away home
with someone else’s daughter
in your throat
fly to your nest of bones
my queen of desolation
you are brooding your clutch of stillborns
birdy step away from me
(she lives in the shadows)
birdy fly away home
(high on the hilltop)
birdy step away from me
(says, “you will be happy here”)
birdy fly away home
with someone else’s daughter in your throat
(we will be happy here)
fly to your nest of bones
my queen of desolation
you are brooding your clutch of stillborns
in your nest of bones
(she lives in the shadows)
in your nest
(she lives in the shadows)
and you, you will soon learn
i’m the bitterest of worms
and you, you will soon learn
i’m the bitterest of worms
the bitterest of worms
the bitterest of worms
the bitterest
and it is cold now
in your nest of bones
you live in your shadows
you’re high on your hilltop
you’re in your nest of bones
my queen of desolation
you are clutching your bloody hope
you hold me to your breast
you hold me in your shadows
say, we will be happy here
