Mewithoutyou - A Glass Can Only Spill What It Contains lyrics

rate me

A cat came drifting onto my porch from the outside cold<br />

And with eyes closed, drinking warm milk from my bowl,<br />

Thought:<br />

<br />

"nobody hears me!(nobody hears me)<br />

As I crept in so soft!<br />

And nobody sees me!(nobody sees me)<br />

As I watched six steps off."<br />

<br />

Like the peacocks wandering the walkways of the zoo<br />

Who have twice the autonomy the giraffes and the tigers do,<br />

Saying:<br />

<br />

"no one can stop me,(no one can stop me)<br />

No one clips my claws!<br />

Now everyone watch me(everyone watch me)<br />

Scale these outside walls!"<br />

You took the puous and profane,<br />

Turned around the praise and blame,<br />

Said "a glass can only spill what it contains"<br />

To the perpetually plain and the incurably inane<br />

A glass can only spill what it contains<br />

<br />

What new mystery is this?<br />

What blessed backwardness??<br />

The Immeasurable One is held and does not resist!<br />

Struck by wicked words and foolish fists of senseless men<br />

The Almighty One does not defend!<br />

<br />

I was halfway listening to what she thinks she knows<br />

We're like children dressing in our parents' clothes, saying:<br />

<br />

"Nobody knows me,(nobody knows me)<br />

No one knows my name,<br />

No, nobody knows me,(nobody knows me)<br />

Nobody knows me..."<br />

I half-heartedly explained<br />

But gave up peacefully ashamed<br />

As a glass can only spill what it contains<br />

We went to Portugal and Spain<br />

And in her mind the entire time it rained!<br />

A glass can only spill what it contains<br />

<br />

What new mystery is this? in overflowing emptiness<br />

The Invisible is seen among the shadows and the mist,<br />

Before my doubting eyes the Infinite appears in time-<br />

The Unquestionable is questioned but makes no reply!<br />

<br />

What new mystery is this(x5)?!<br />

"my Rabbi!"<br />

My lips betray with a kiss<br />

<br />

What new mystery is this?
