lyrics

You lied about the river I lied about the sea
Like a telegraph cutter that lies to the trees
I didn't want your picture I just want the frame
I don't need your worry I just want your name

I walked and I dreamed an old dilettante's dream
How to hold down your station, hide where you've been
Lost in a wish that is ether and steam
I forgot what I was and what it might mean

So I ran from the dust and the terrible sky
To the arms of a fool full of terrible lies
Mild was the evening when we stole away
Then you lost me on purposes and sky gave way

Now the soldier brigades they in unison sing
And the world will be lighter in the morning it seems
Lost in a wish that is ether and steam
I forgot what I was and what it might mean

All my dreaming is done
My last breath is drawn
All my dreaming is done
My last breath is drawn



What have I needled here?
I trembled over this part
So red but it's not real
It's just a chain-stitched heart

What did I give away?
A magnet for my mule
No furrow will I plow
God never loved his fool
God never loved his fool
God never loved his fool
