lyrics

You stumble through the door
And you throw off your coat
And lying on the floor
Her suicide note
You recite every word
Until they form a lump
In your throat
But for some reason
You do not cry
But for some reason
You do not cry

And you take to the streets
After you polish off some wine
And a voice from a shadows
Sends a shiver down your spine
She’s smoking a fag
And she asks you for the time
And then she says
That you’re just too late
And then she says
That you’re just too late

And then she howls
And dances ‘Round the moon
Unfurls her wings
And flies you to her room
And picks your brains out
With a rusty spoon

And steals the apple
Of your eye
(Repeat)

There on the platform
Waiting in the rain
She’s on the opposite side
About to board her train
You have different destinations
But your journey it’s the same
You understand
But you don’t know why
You understand
But you don’t know why

With dust on your dreams
You reach the end of the line
The city now a desert
And it’s frozen in time
And with her withered hand
She draws a crooked line
Which you know
That you have to cross
Which you know
That you have to cross

And then she lights
A candle with the sun
Crawls into the cave
Which your soul
Has now become
To rid you of darkness
And the world
That’s left you numb

And steal the apple
Of your eye
(Repeat)
