lyrics

As you ease em down your fingers you can see through the walls,
and taste the color of the paint, or shrink to one inch tall;
all the words coming out of peoples mouth you see fly off like bats,
and you can move like on the moon, twenty meters in a swoop, and
you catch glimpses of the future like the shadows of the moths in the streetlights, and sometimes you hear a great hum of all the
gears that wind the suns.....and they’ve got wonky little lizards
and stars that look like feathers,
and they even go together with your fuzzy bunny sweater -

Secret power mittens. soft as glowy kittens,
and in the bones of winter they keep your hands so warm.

They can hypnotize anyone, put the spirals in their eyeballs
Or hold them close together: control the leaves and wooly weather.
They feel like living breathing static - amplified muff, high gain fluff;
but if you keep em on a little too much, you might pick up a habit;
these people hooked on knitted magic,
with a plush in every pocket out to fight the doom (of us all)
sad yarns hoarded in the shade of their rooms;
freezing howling things. Frayed ruins;
cause in the bones of winter they couldn’t keep their hands warm.
