lyrics

After all the loving had gone
Remaining Pity
Made a pair of souls in the shape
Of empty bottles

Pity played a wondrous tune
Upon these bottles
Differences of volume and air
Sang separate tunings

Maybe he made fools of them both
That pathos vendor
Bragging all the way to the bank

Spider's silk is still soft
Spider's silk is so soft
I can't even take it off
I won't take it off
You wear it as a heart
Or as a scarf
But don't take it off

Turning back to look at the pair
Of empty bottles
You know the ones I mentioned before
In the first verse

Pity felt that he'd had enough
Of this poor pair
Left them by the side of the road
Drained and forgotten

Maybe he made fools of them both
That pathos vendor
Bragging all the way to the bank

Spider's silk is still soft
Spider's silk is so soft
I can't even take it off
I won't take it off
Wear it as a heart or as a hat
Or as a sock
Or as a scarf
Don't take it off
