lyrics

THIS CHAIR WHERE I’M SAT, WHERE I’M AT
WHERE YOUR BOMBER JACKET’S HANGING ON THE BACK
I PUT THE ARM AROUND ME
I PUT MY HEART ON THE SLEEVE

I’D HOLD YOUR HAND WERE IT FILLED
BUT YOU’RE NOT WITH ME, NOT WITH ME
I’LL PUT IT ON, FILL THE BUILD
NOT SITTING WITH ME, NOT WITH ME

SEW UP THE BOTTOM, NECK AND CUFFS, ZIP IT UP
CHECK YOUR POCKETS, YOU AIN’T LOST US, TRUST YOUR GUT
IN HERE IT’S DARK, I HOLD MY KNEES
A COAT OF ARMOUR ON ME LIKE YOUR ARMS AROUND ME

I’M HOLDING SAFE WITHIN THIS FORT
BUT YOU’RE NOT WITH ME
NOT WITH ME

I’M NEVER GONNA LEAVE IF YOU’RE
NOT UNZIPPING ME
UNPICK ME

PICK ME, PICK ME UP, PACK ME UP
UP IN YOUR BACKPACK, IN YOUR JACKET, TAKE ME HOME
THIS CHAIR IS NOT A HOUSE NOR HOME IF YOU’RE
NOT SITTING WITH ME, NOT WITH ME

I FEEL THE LINING AGAINST MY SKIN, WEARING THIN
LIMBS COULD RIP IT, NEED A CLIP OR SAFETY PIN
HOLD TOGETHER AGAIN, BOY WHERE YOU BEEN?
COME BACK A MINUTE, YOUR JACKET, I’M STILL IN IT

FORGOT IT, WITH ME, YOU LOST IT
I’M LOSING STITCHES, WIRES CROSSING
PILLING POLYCOTTON
50/50 NATURAL PLASTIC

FABRICATED THREADS FORGOTTEN
COTTONED ONTO YOU IN PATCHES
YOU WANT SQUARE, THAT QUILTED FABRIC
LAID OUT EVEN ON A MATTRESS

IS THIS HELL? IS THIS HELP?
BOMBSHELL OR BOMB SHELTER?
AM I HELL? AM I HELP?
BOMBSHELL OR BOMB SHELTER?

IS THIS THE REMAINS OR A STRUCTURE?
BOMBSHELL OR BOMB SHELTER?
DO WE REMAIN? THE BOMBER AS THE SHELTER
THE HELD, THE HELPLESS
IF THIS BLOWS UP THEN CAN WE RECONSTRUCT IT?
