The Engine Room

lyrics

She thought it would never stop
as she hid in the grandfather clock
with eyes that were painted on
she'd wait till the wolf was gone

she held tight a safety pin
and remembered how her mother would sing
when she, she lost her wedding ring in rain

together the woodsman and me
cut down the tallest tree
built up a fire soon
as hot as an engine room

I held tight an axe to grind
and remembered how mother would find her way
when she lost her wedding ring in rain

Don't go outside again
the wolf will gobble you up and swallow you whole
here the wolf
hunting the boys who cried his name too many times

that voice is booming still
like thunder from the windowsill
these walls need a remedy
to clean out the enemys

the house held the kitchen tight
the heart of a home until that night
oh how the chopping board would sing

Don't go outside again
the wolf will gobble you up and swallow you whole
here the wolf
hunting the boys who cried his name too many times
(with a belly full of stones)
