  • I know something about opening windows and doors
    I know how to move quietly to creep across creaky wooden floors
    I know where to find precious things in all your cupboards and drawers

    Slipping the clippers
    Slipping the clippers through the telephone wires
    The sense of isolation, the sense of isoloation
    Inspires me

    I like to feel the suspense when I'm certain you know I am there
    I like you lying awake, your baited breath charging the air
    I like the touch and the smell of all the pretty dresses you wear

    Intruders happy in the dark
    Intruder come
    Intruder come and he leave his mark, leave his mark
    Leave his mark
    Leave his mark
    Leave his mark
    Leave his mark
    Leave his mark
    Leave his mark
