Fire and the Thud Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You showed me my tomorrow
Beside a box of matches
A welcome threatening stir
Verse 2
My hopes of being stolen
Might just ring true
Depends who you prefer
Verse 3
But if it's true you're gonna run away
Tell me where
I'll meet you there
Verse 4
Am I snapping the excitement
If I pack away the laugther
And tell you how it feels
Verse 5
And does burden come to meet ya
If I've questions of the feature that runs on your dream wheel
Verse 6
The day after you stole my heart,
Everything I touched told me it would be better shared with you
Verse 7
With you
Verse 8
And now you're hiding in my sleep
And the book reveals your face
And there's a splashing in my eyelids
As the concentration continually breaks
Verse 9
I did request the mark you cast
Didn't heal as fast
I hear your voice in silences
Will the teasing of the fire be followed by the thud?
Verse 10
And the jostling crowd
You're not allowed to tell the truth
And the photo booth's a liar
Verse 11
And the sharpened explanation
But there's no screaming reason to inquire
I'd like to poke them in their prying eyes
With things they never see if it smacked them in their temples
