Mind Your Eyes (Stolen Babies)

Even in buildings and still alleys, there is a sneaking threat breaking in A little like fog, a little like heat, too much like an invasion of safety (Breaking in) I don't know why the dogs are barking (Breaking in) Or why the gate is shaking (Breaking in) It's not just the roof settling (Breaking in) What is it that has followed me? I really do wish you had minded your eyes And now a chain has been set off that can't be wound back up And late in the night there's a clanking and clanging of sounds Way too loud outside Eyes perpendicular to the ground Pulling the corners down even more When they moved from top to bottom A cringe came to catch up with me later on (Take it back) When my feet run the things I say (Take it back) Retreating back to what is safe (Take it back) A self protection policy (Take it back) In spite of all that it still has followed me I really do wish you had minded your eyes And now a chain has been set off that can't be wound back up And late in the night there's a clanking and clanging of sounds Way too loud outside Black face and white wool...I'm counting but it doesn't help And if you had just minded your eyes I wouldn't be so wound up as I'm winding down And on my shelves all my trinkets Shoved aside for what's way too loud outside The streets growing out strings Tugging the line, subtracting the winks Following something I'm hearing Doors will scare me, windows leave me blind On the tips of my toes (Following) Trailing the tracks between the grey and glistening (Following) A changing face loses shape What is it that I'm following?
