lyrics

SECRET CLAW

secret claw
hoorah hoorah
secret claw
hoorah hoorah

hurry up and flash me a sign
are we scurrying or standing in line?
do we worry or do we semper fi?
do we tourniquet or is this goodbye?

secret claw
tell all tell all
secret claw
tell all tell all

tell us everything you know to be true
and if you don't know just pretend that you do
give us names that we can blame for the fall
give up the game give up the secret claw

tell us all about your disease
did you get it from the things you believe
there must be better ways to play out this scene
don't be afraid to trade your blue for green

hurry up and flash us a sign
are we scurrying or standing in line?
do we worry or do we testify?
are we born again or is this goodbye?

secret claw
hoorah hoorah
secret claw
hoorah hoorah
