about

Or are you in it for the cloak and dagger?

lyrics

All the things left unsaid
Start to burn in his head
And it goes off like a bottle rocket

All the words there on tap
Never poured, never drank
Are the ones that you can never forget

Maybe there’s just ice cream is his songs.
Maybe there’s just lightning in his bones.
Or are you in it for the cloak and dagger?

My my my

(whistles!)

But his heart’s filling up
With the sparks from the drums
Took the two to make one
And the knot’s come undone

So why are your shoulders
Covered in soldiers
Relax just a bit

Maybe there’s just ice cream is his songs.
Maybe there’s just lightning in his bones.
Or are you in it for the cloak and dagger?

Cloak and dagger

Stabbing you senseless with his rapier wit
He steals the spotlight while he’s hiding from it

My my my
