lyrics

Claude Dillinger
sleeping like a sky without a bird
clean like a cat
sleeping when he heard a crawling rat

and so he woke up
and he switched on a light
he saw the rodent staring
like a star in the night
Claude jumped to chase it
running out of his door
and down the stairs they all
were on his basement floor

just like a ghost
a presence that was
felt inside his home
but never close
to calming down the
nerve of his shadow

he saw the grave
in which he wanted to drown
and haunt the waters
of a flowing burial ground

sinking in the crawling
to feel light

Claude ran upstairs
frightened by the sight and unprepared
to face those rats
all swirling like a whirlpool so he sat

up in his kitchen
and he heard that the squeels
grew louder in his mind
until he knew it was real
that more and more
were joining up in the swell
they wanted Claude to join him
and they called to his soul

just like a ghost
a presence that was
felt inside his home
becoming close
to calming down the
nerve of his shadow

he saw the grave
in which he wanted to drown
and haunt the waters
of a flowing burial ground

sinking in the crawling
to feel light
