06. knives out

i want you to know.
you have a beautiful smile.
i want you to know.
he needs his eyes.
i was so angry.
i couldn't let him leave me.
and not come back.
i didnt want to.
is that why you killed him?
won't be long now.
he's cold. freezing.
doesn't need clothes.
i used to have a hole right through me.
i want you to know.
he's not coming back.
i won't forget.
if you'd been a dog.
they would have drowned you at birth.
look into my eyes.
its the only way you'll know i'm telling the truth.
i wont let them touch you.
i won't let them near you.
i won't let you come to any harm.


It's partly the idea of the businessman walking out on his wife and kids and never coming back. It's also the thousand yard stare when you look at someone close to you and you know they're gonna die. It's like a shadow over them, or the way they look straight through you. The shine goes out of their eyes.
--Thom Yorke
