Cataracts
Andrew Bird Lyrics


And when our mouths are filled with uninvited tongues of others
And the strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
Milk that sours is promptly spat, light will fill our eyes like cats

And they shall enter from the back
With spears and scepters and squirming sacks
Scribs and tangles between their ears
Faceless scrumbled charcoal smears, oh dear

Through the coppice and the chaparral
The thickets thick with mold
The bracken and the brier
Catch weed into the fold

When our mouths are filled with uninvited tongues of others
And the strays are pining for their unrequited mothers
Milk that sours is promptly spat, light will fill our eyes like cats
Light will fill our eyes like cats, cataracts

Just heard this song a few days ago and I can't get it out of my head. My wife hates me walking around whistling. :)

It must be years since I've heard this song last... Even though everything changes, I still cannot forget this song. Such beauty leaves an everlasting imprint.
