lyrics

Her candle wick burns slowly.
She feels her vision grey
The ashen world before her
a charcoal woolen scarf

The charcoal woolen scarf she wears
produced in heaven’s mill
by looming hunking ghosts
the ragged seers of desperate hopes

Wandering these great halls like lost gods
darlings of the industrial lords
They pass - towering over the world below

A clear mind would clear the room.
Would she leave or be there still?
Would she stand with you and speak in lost languages?
Would she answer you with simple words?

The silence breaks I speak in verse
I try so hard to believe in words
I witness and I testify:
The millions lost weren’t mine

Late night TV still makes her cry
such deep and careworn tears
The scarf she wears of charcoal grey
a great dark loss beneath the waves

I live in a fictional world of ghosts
This mortal veil our world enrobes
We are but shadows passing through the ice below

A clear mind would clear the room.
Would she leave or be there still?
Would she stand with you and speak in lost languages?
Would she answer you with simple words?
