The Princess and the Pistol (Can You Feel That​?​)

from by Jack of None

lyrics

Your pistol of death
I contain entirely
Between my lips
Breathe air into the barrel
Greet dust that leaks rust

Take wings of flame
The burrowing blame
What a shame, what a shame

Set fire as the sky is falling
Set fire as the rains are pouring

Each wet feather I caress then drop
Each wet feather I caress then drop
Each wet feather I caress then drop
Blind talons
See me soar again

Can you feel that?
I’m saying goodbye

Can you feel that?
I’m passing you by

Can you feel that?
I’m flying so high

Can you feel that?

I am not hushed by a fear of falling
As I kiss your broken wings
Your frozen repose
Your hollow voice of Gone
In an abattoir of None
Be the sun, be the sun

Take wings of flame
Burn the timid and the tame
Who’s to blame? Who’s to blame?

Breathe fire as my limbs are soaring
Breathe fire as the hounds go whoring

Each wet feather I’ll caress then drop
Each wet feather I’ll caress then drop
Each wet feather I’ll caress then drop
Deaf talons
Hear me roar again

Can you feel that?
I’m saying goodbye

Can you feel that?
I’m passing you by

Can you feel that?
I’m flying so high

Can you feel that?
