  • I'm taping up the windows and the doors
    I'm nailing all my pretty things to the floor

    Eyes like fire
    A tempest in the water
    Eyes like mine
    A temper like your mother's

    Daughter, please
    It's me
    Tell me what you've seen
    Daughter, please
    Spare me
    Old men's voices screaming
    And soon we'll see
    What you really mean
    All the pretty children sharpening their blades
    Where my daughter passes only ruins remain

    She's walking through the cracks in the walls
    She's walking across the chicken bones on the floor

    Just a little girl
    And jesus was a woman
    Just a little girl
    And lot who knew his daughters

    Daughter, please
    It's me
    Tell me what you've seen
    Daughter, please
    Spare me
    Old men's voices screaming
    And soon we'll sleep
    In pieces on the street
    All the pretty children sharpening their blades
    Where my daughter passes only ruins remain

    From the egg
    Broke my little girl
    Destroyer of worlds Writer/s: BEN LITTLE, CHRISTOPHER ROBERT TALBOT, HAYDEN NORMAN THORPE, THOMAS WILLIAM FLEMING
