All wrapped up in this darkness that the sun won't mention
He remembers this on his own
In between the moon and the far horizon
There's this little village and it keeps their bones

She breaks in through a small window
And she hides all the controls
She squeezed 'til the bones fractured
But he never lets it show

So she walks back down
She walks back down
She unsays all the stories she told

He walks backwards through these bad things
So he can see them leave him
Still the evidence it stains the roads
But her fingers - they flicker, they're moving
But his mind still stays slow
Because these memories they won't loose their hold

He lives on this cold mountain
where his friends would never go
He says 'If we don't mention this - no one ver needs to know'

So he walks back down
He walks bak down
He believes there's still blood in this stone

The gambling machines sing a noisy love song
While his lullabies rape her soul
Her brother - he is a good man
But there is some early warning
That these damaged goods will never be sold

They swim through the warm shallows
But they're emptier than most
They swear if they just water this
The fucking thing'll grow

So they walk back down
They walk back down
They pretend that this house is a home
