You were the houseguest of some petit bourgeois dame
Who kept you for conversation until her tastes changed
A warden's prisoner in some powder republic
He was too young not to be cruel
You bit the hand and they took you away

With a stiff gait
And your knees shake
Scream at every arm above you
Under the covers with your mother
I can feel the change

When we first met you you would barely eat
And you only knew your name and I couldn't get to sleep
I thought it was over on the night you ran away
'till I came home to find you
huddled in the doorway

I want to explore with you just us on our six legs
The way we would alone looking for each secret place
When winter breaks will you go everywhere with me?
I can't make you trust the world but think of what we'll see
