lyrics

We snuck in the back
your purse
full of the laws of nature
and kiss me over the garden gate

we stole the sandman’s silver watch,
fled down the trail of moonlight dripping from it’s cogs
I wrapped it round your wrist, it fit
and we hid within a starless kiss

You and I, we walk the streets at night
our faces painted for war
by dim street lights

the sun came up
our trail ran cold
because the hunting hounds
have all grown old
but who have we become
in the light of this new sun?

we lobotomized and then set free
the cult of Johnny Appleseed
and our rabid pantheon of dreams
can’t see the orchard for the apple trees

"there, there" and "it’s ok"
dance around your weeping face
like we danced around the fires
in our midnight masks

all we are is our desire
like ash is just the memory of fire
I cover you from head to toe
to hide you from all earthly woe

walk among scavengers
for just one more taste
of amazing grace
but to get out of the rain
we’ll settle for a fire and a fairy tale
