lyrics

well he's just left the house of our heroine and he's swearin that he's never goin there again and she weeps in the corner the tears of the mourner she swore she'd never ever be again.
and i watch in the car, on my friend's cell phone in this town where if every secret's known then i sleep to the sound of my creaking bones never being left alone

so you'll translate the whole mess to silent film which you'll sell to make your baby sing again but she won't last two weeks on that stuff that you eat and she'll never feast where her feet've been.

(and each candle you light by the mornin ain't bright less you leave every little thing alone)

heard you're cruisin on out there to ohio and the mind that you're losin is some light show and i know how we fought the ephemeral, still i'm hopin you make it home. maybe i was asleep and you caught my lie maybe what you repeat will not pass you by, you don't hate me for what i did to you. you hate me for who i am.

(and each candle i light won't keep me warm at night, as the whole place is set to learn)

well he's just left the halls of our heroine and she's layin there prayin the spring will return but i know that the pages we light with our pens won't create enough heat to roast every hen but at least we can make the most of this end

i'm a sleek silk scarf on a puff beige coat he'll warm your arms as i surround your throat i'm as damaged as Hamrick's will sell -- hot damn if i ain't doin well

this act began in 2004 and just turned ten years old. it's been surviving on the fringes of interest since the day it was first conceived. it's worth doing. it's that thing of realising you are your own best friend and you need to take as good of care of yourself as you possibly can and in so doing you learn to take care of everyone else. ... more
