lyrics

We can dance
Like marionettes on strings
Awkward but in time
And entertain the crowd...
And we blush
Explosions in the night
Like fireworks in bloom
Proof that we exist
And I’ll raise
A glass for all that’s right
And all the ones I’ve wronged
A song for us to sing...

Summoned by the raven’s call
With melodies that soar and fall
Spinning in a skeleton waltz
Dizzy and the world dissolves...

Where’d you go?
My senses are slow
I thought tonight we could talk
Where’d you go?
You’ll be back I know
The days and nights are so long ...

Can’t you see?
Pharaohs out in space
Drew themselves on rocks
As tourists they must laugh
So it is
Like it’s always been
Like a falling star
Beautiful in death...

Summoned by the raven’s call
With melodies that soar and fall
Spinning in a skeleton waltz
Dizzy as the world dissolves...

Where’d you go?
My senses are slow
I thought tonight we could talk
Where’d you go?
You’ll be back I know
I feel alive and so strong....

I’m not mystified any longer
A crowded desire
And our wasted time
And I’ve grown immune
The fever is gone
And here we walk
I don’t know
I’m coming home...

And I’m lifted up higher
Attached from above
And I rip through the lines A
nd the velveteen gloves
And in those patient eyes
A thousand years young
Maybe in the still light ...
