lyrics

Brightly the chain comes unwound
The coils that keep me up off the ground
And my orbit drops a step
But don't place your bets
This ain't the bottom yet

I've been trying to lose my taste
For the shape of your hips and the look of your face
I throw myself at the floor
And break my bones
But they mend the same as before

It's a story like you might read
The boy who would rather watch himself bleed
Never getting the bandages right
After the afternoon fight
Just puts it off another night

Now all of the altar girls cry
At the eulogy delivered from the pulpit high
I'll kiss them all in time
One by one visit me
Now in my sleep

Slowly my shirt comes undone
And then my shoes, and my belt, and everything under the sun
Gives way to the terrible wind
That blew in with you when you came back again
When you came back again
