about this table

Lyrics

Far away hangs a red light
Far away, yet close enough to see
Blinking on and off, brings me closer to the edge
The earth is rolling underneath my feet

Swallow me
As I swallow you
Carry me
Jump into the river
Yeah

One more time for good measure
Once again for the pleasure
And thank you, mama, for the food I'm about to eat
And thank you for the hours I have laid with you
C'mon

Swallow me
As I swallow you
Carry me
Jump into the river
Yeah
