lyrics

I shot you in the chest

and left you in a wasteland

your shadow's coming back

not welcome in my dreams

I drag your open wood box

your frozen face, forever happy

and put your body down

now I know what I would do to you...

I'd use rosebuds for your hips

so young they never bloomed

I'd wrap around your tepid womb

your breasts I'd dye the color

of pastures in Greenland

and time would never end

my lips on yours forever sealed

it's time to let it go

a silk magenta scarf

I liked to rest in there

I'm ready to let go

Psychodrama, hope it works,

I hope it takes your image

and feeds it to the birds

while singing deep down from their chests

migrating far away

in tropical pursuit

this melody for you

"we brought you here with us

a boardwalk to the horizon

this warm and fruity sand

will soothe your bones away

dissolving your persistent echo

in sweet pineapple dreams

your voice will be our chirp

your eyes will be the ocean

and finally it will be time to rest, rest, rest...
