lyrics

and someone's gonna take him away
i heard them say it out the black-bat window
i see them in the backyard, louder than my own heart,
white horse, high horse, flaming pumpkin head

i was an empty-headed girl
black-eyed and both my elbows bruised
never once did i hit the ground running
i've got one eye on the tomb

i've got one eye on the room
one eye on the mirror and one on you
i got the kind of head you look right through
i nursed your pride, i wound the wound

i was raised online, so i can never go outside
i'll find another seed to swallow
i wanna be hollow, hollow
oh, i'll drink me right, oh, i'm gonna tie up all my lines
so let the weepy willow wallow
my head's heavy but it's hollow, hollow

white horse, high horse, flaming pumpkin head

i hold the lantern high, i drag my feet across the ground
i've got my mouth wide open, but the flame still flickers out
oh, i see right through you
but love, you're looking right through me
the way my insides used to echo
i could've been a hollow tree

white horse, high horse, flaming pumpkin head

i wrote a new anthology
it's full of you and only smells of me
i sit in silent, mimicked symmetry
stupid little pine making stupid little signs taking "stupidly mine" way too literally

oh, how to reimburse?
the head, the horse, the hearse, the heart, the hurt
tell me again which one was worse
those greedy superstitious little bastard sons of bitches
or your body, or the mercy of the earth?

i was raised online, so i can never go outside
i'll find another seed to swallow
i wanna be hollow, hollow
oh, i'll drink me right, i think i'm running out of time
so let the fallow fellow follow, my head's heavy but it's hollow, hollow

white horse, high horse, flaming pumpkin head

i see it all comes back to this
my knuckles knocking on your grave
i see you safe within the window
but you were wrong, it isn't safe

and now i'm hanging up my coat
the wire's cold but i don't care
i'll be as hollow as you're rotten
you won't remember i was there

but i – i – i was there
