“I swallowed my words to keep from lying.”

I shut and locked the front door
No way in or out
I turned and walked the hallway
And pulled the curtains down
I knelt and emptied the mouth of every plug around
But nothing’s sound, nothing’s sound

I stay where my last step left me
Ignored all my rounds
Soon I was seeing visions and cracks along the walls
They were upside down

I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding

It’s been about three days now
Since I’ve been aground
No longer overwhelmed and it seems so simple now
It’s funny when things change so much
It’s all state of mind

I swallowed my words to keep from lying
I swallowed my face just to keep from biting, I, I
I swallowed my breath and went deep, I was diving, I was diving
I surfaced and all around my being was enlightened

Now I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
Oh, I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
I’m in hiding
