Where I Put My Hands

lyrics

She pinned the seams, up close to me.
She held the needles in her teeth.
Pins and needles, in her teeth.
Close to me.

We’re on a schedule, I’d really help her out.
But she drew blood, she drew blood,
she drew blood, she drew blood.

And where (where)
I put my hands (I put my hands.)
and where (where’s safe)
to point my eyes, they’re on her side, she’s working.

On any dais, I’ll work for free, I work for free.
Make and mending soulless clothes, to be close to me.
She drew blood, she drew blood,
she drew blood, she drew blood.
Am I fit for her dress?
She thinks I am, I said she thinks
that I’m fast, I’m impressed by the steel
between her teeth.

And where (where)
I put my hands (I put my hands.)
and where (where’s safe)
to point my eyes, they’re on her side,

And where (where)
I put my hands (I put my hands.)
and where (where’s safe)
to point my eyes, they’re on her side, I keep them to myself, keep them to myself.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
