Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

I love that she dances


i hid in the forest
after the job
had filled me with dread again
had billed me the lot
so i hid in the forest
and sang to the trees
the trees, they all listened
and did as they pleased

i slept at the old house
after the bombs
had emptied the cities
had lost their aplomb
so i slept at the old house
and dreamed of a girl
she was potent and moody
said she'd give me a whirl
an enchanted girl
she whispered me nothing
she said she's not a rental
she's certainly something

break me again
shatter the body
open the stopples
dance me the story
i love that she dances
i love that she dances
she always dances
i always die
break me again
shatter the sky

i wrestled a cowboy
down on his luck
he emptied his pockets
surrendered his truck
i wrestled a cowboy
he died in his lungs
he said that the enzymes
were all that he'd won

i slept in the shadows
then up came the sun
the light came like razors
i am such a bum
i slept in the shadows
and rose in the sea
i fell off the planet
i miss all the trees

break me again
shatter the body
open the stopples
dance me the story
i love that she dances
i love that she dances
she always dances
i always die
break me again
shatter the sky

i slept at the old house
after the bombs
had emptied the cities
had lost their aplomb
so i slept at the old house
and dreamed of a girl
she was potent and moody
said she'd give me a whirl
an enchanted girl
she whispered me nothing
she said she's not a rental
she's certainly something
