lyrics

We were much younger then,
when we stitched our hearts to our outstretched wrists
held gently in our palms
filled with stones from dried up river beds,
not yet filled with broken words unspoken.

A cautionary tale, a coronary tale,
are your chamber doors open, darling, are they veiled,
from the blood red blood and it’s blood red flow,
stowed away behind ribs and skin and bones,
Beat goes on and still the beat goes on.

Ovid watches closely through the sorrows.
will your lover still love you tomorrow?

Worse than murder, more harmful than a poem,
turned to dust just after he turned to stone.
A stolen foot and a broken bow,
shivers in the trees and shakes in the shadows, in the shadows
Beat goes on and still the beat goes on…

Beat goes on and still the beat goes on.
