lyrics

All around the world there seems to be
apples in the trees for you and me,
but if you find a place that's safe and warm,
the demons in your dreams will find a way
to crawl into the cracks and hide at bay.
but if you feed them and stroke them
and love them and carry them in your pocket to jump out whenever you're feeling a little insecure they'll...

They'll soothe you and kiss you and hold your hand.
They'll hug you and hit you and reprimand.
Soothe you and kiss you and hold your hand.
They'll hug you and hit you and reprimand.
but if you feed them and stroke them
and love them and carry them in your pocket to jump out whenever you're feeling a little insecure they'll...

But I'll stay strong and levelheaded.
It's all a phase of ego mania.
With all the nights and days of weeping,
you sure do act like you're my oyster.
But I still know the truth.
You're a plain engastrimyth.

They'll soothe you and kiss you and hold your hand.
They'll hug you and hit you and reprimand.
Soothe you and kiss you and hold your hand.
They'll hug you and hit you and reprimand.
but if you feed them and stroke them and love them and carry them in your pocket to jump out whenever you're feeling a little insecure they'll...
Eat you from the inside out.
