from the tap of the telegraph
to the movement of your tongue
i sap the signal and feed
oh oh oh oh
the invisible elephant
the center of the room
i wouldn't say malevolent
but i suck
oh oh oh oh
if the walls aren't whispering
and your things are standing still
be sure i'm listening
to your thoughts
oh oh oh oh
the most dubious dinner guest
a single empty chair
you needn't try a second guess
i'm there
oh oh oh oh
call it waiting
dead and dreaming
tiny feelings i can steal from you
shifting papers
pulling drapes down
a show of strength
now look what i can do
i'm at the edge
i'm at the center
i'm getting better
you're looking thinner
i'll be waking real soon
