lyrics

My fingers turn to hammers
Beat on rusty broken fingernails
I built you a melody
To save your sorry soul from hell
The beats are sharp
They press you patiently
You can't deny your grace
You dance around that grave
While the skeleton inside your body shakes
You dance around the graveyard full of skeletons
My body shakes

And the cold air is a faint affair
Breathing down my back
As I lay here watching your weeping movements
I can't stop your weeping movements dear

Voyeuristic Valentine
The trees and spirits take their time
And hold your eyes and tell you stories
Revolutionary glory
Tears of grief and tears of joy
I swim like buried men in thunder
Lifting broken bones
The music moves you to a waltz
Your body shakes
Oh soon the skeletons will take your hand and ask you
Can they have their way?

And the cold air is a faint affair
Breathing down my back
As I lay here watching your weeping movements
I can't stop your weeping movements dear

You wink at me and blow a kiss
And grab the bony spirit prince
He's smoking deadly cigarettes
And wanders with his lonely hand
Across your perfect human flesh
He tosses me a clever glance
And apathetically he takes you to his lonely apartment to dance

The cold air is a faint affair
Breathing down my back
As I lay here watching your weeping movements
i can't stop your weeping movements dear

My hammers turn to fingers
And they pluck with newly given life
And sculpted with their calluses
The likeness of your haunting dress
A laughing face from ancient window
Hanging from a weeping willow
The skeletons are all hungover
Swollen joints remind them of their age
Oh go to sleep my dear. I'll never weep for you
Just let my body shake
