Leaving Through The Window

Straw Dog

Staring into the intersection
She thinks that she can fly
And she might hold it on in a new direction
Shes gonna try it tonight
The closer I get to feeling
The further that Im feeling from alright
The more I step into the sun
The more I step out of the light

Jessica is covered in a blanket
On a Sunday porch
Thinking of weekends she would party in the city
She doesnt have a flame
Shed prefer to burn out
Like a torch
If she gets nowhere in life
At least she knows shes pretty

She said hey now
The straw dogs out in the street
Hey now
Theres chemicals in the cloud
Hey now
They're calling all the police
But they wont get to us
Anyhow

The moon is shining down
And shadows are whats left of all the noise
Simple silohuttes and cut outs
As if we had a choice
He listens closely now
Swears that he can hear a voice
Thats calling him

Saying hey now
The straw dogs out in the street
Hey now
Theres chemicals in the clouds
Hey now
Theyre calling all the police
But they wont get to us
Anyhow

No no no no no no no no no no no no

What does it take to be a super hero in my world?
Make no mistake that these villans always get the girl
We can escape
And then wed skate away from all of this
But no one ever does

And shes saying
Hey now
The straw dog is out in the street
Hey now
Theres chemicals in the cloud
Hey now
Theyre calling all the police
But they wont get to us
No theyll never get to us
They know
The straw dogs out in the street
They know theres chemicals in the clouds
Theyre calling all the police
But they wont get to us
No Ill never let them get to you
Oh no no no
