lyrics

The summer days are ending
And the sky overhead is turning red
So I sit down beside my old campfire
Cause it's been a long hard day, and I'm tired

I like living in the place where spiders make their webs
As roommates go they don't bother me much
Sometimes I catch them swaying in time while I sing
They taught me the eight legged waltz

The night brings clouds of chimney soot grey
I can't do nothing, so I sit and I pray
For the sun how I miss her, and I long to be with her
The endless rain's the only reason I pray

The endless rain's the only reason I pray
The only reason I pray at all

I've been trying to read the signs in the number of crows that pass by
Throwing feathers in the wind, but they're always blowing west
I've been trying to find the time to learn the art of reading minds
But I found to speak your mind works best

I hear the wind as it whispers through the trees
It's the same every year with the falling of the leaves
But the sound is so faint I can't trust my ears
My bones are so weary I can't trust my years

Coming apart at the seams, can't wake from my dreams
But the recluse whispers sweetly in my ear
Let him sit on my cheek, drink my tears he likes the salt
While I play him the eight legged waltz

I'm going insane it's the only reason I pray
The endless rain's the only reason I pray
This winterus cage is the only reason I pray
The only reason I pray at all
