lyrics

A fitting end to our last hooray:
a fractured moon with no sense to stay.
Out of the blue, you done lied to me, sayin’
I want you more than the lord of sleep.

How the legs went down, how the back caved-in
How the red-light-twirl made the ground skin-thin

A box of shells, the clowns you drew,
A blackened spoon with no life to lose.
Out of the night, a line came to me, sayin’
Whatever’s cold ain’t mine to keep.

How the legs went down, how the back caved-in
How the red-light-twirl made the ground skin-thin
How the walls took flight, how they laughed like kings
How the siren wailed like an angel-scream

Bit by bit, the sky tears in two:
a dead half for me, a dead half for you.
In this light, a star can’t exist
with no sun to curse, with no moon to kiss.

Bit by bit, our love tore in two:
a cold cell for me, a black cloud for you.
Time will tell, as it lives to speak,
if the mind can still what the heart can’t keep.
