lyrics

Finally on that golden gravel path
That ends at your little ramshackle shack.
finally found my way back home.

I hide from termites in cement.
I hide from the global government.
I hide from everyone I know.

All day I dream of suicide,
But I can’t a slip from the chip inside.
Finally figured all that shit out on fate –
Turns out you’re just my deathmate.

It’s been a hundred and twenty long, long years,
And I’ve just got nowhere else to go.

Oh it was a good life,
I had a good wife.
Last year, she got taken by the snow.

Oh, it’s been quite a time
I say as you hide and I
Pretend to listen – put on the kettle and your final show.

It’s been a hundred and twenty long, long years,
And I’ve just got nowhere else to go.
Oh, we were just kids when
We tore each other to pieces.
Now you’re the only one I wanna know.

The knife sinks deep and feels good.

I laugh just like you knew I would.
You drink quick just like you know you should.
Now the floor’s got your company from the hemlock slipped in your tea.
Could you find the space in your bones
For a vial of my marrow?
Our souls will spring just like the sparrows used to,
When there was a sky for them to spring into.

Decades a slave in front of glowing screens…
Oh, broken backs and replacement rings.
Grandchildren speak in foreign tongues
A secret war fought with all minds won.

Oh, let’s go to the only place we don’t know.
Oh, don’t let me go out alone in the snow.
