lyrics

Open up your pockets
she’s giving it away
beautiful ladies blushing roses in their cheeks
tracing all your birthday wishes
with painted toes in the sand
all your enemies are dead
we’ve eaten up their bodies
the witch and the stepmother,
the neighbors, the older brother
we’ve taken out their eyeballs
we’ve floated them to sea
but oh, there’s time
she’s building machines out of snow
wires and sealing wax
she’s filling up the holes as she goes
the witch and the stepmother
the neighbors the older brother
we’ve taken out their eyeballs
we’ve floated them to sea
but oh there is time
she’s holding her head in her hands
the places we’ve been
seem broken and bent
they haven’t really helped us at all
open up your pockets
she is giving it away
beautiful gifts
giving beautiful feelings
to everyone who hears
what she sings
