Bug Eyes

If I could be a human on the wall
I'd tell it all

I'd tell everyone the dirtiest secrets of kings
Cleanliness is for beggars
Strive must be a nature
He who has it all can finger his insides with pinky ring delight
Saw him chip gold on gold
Fancy, fixated, cool

If I could be a human on the wall
I'd tell it all
I'd tell the mislead a short cut
light traces steps backwards
back to home quicker than you or I
follow it
follow strength through stalking if need be
a nuance withered is invisible to the greedy

If i could be a human on the wall
I'd tell it all
I'd tell everyone it would all fall into place one of these days

If I could be a human on the wall
I'd stand tall
I'd clip my wings and forget flight

If only I was human on the wall
and not a fly at all
