lyrics

when theodora's in the ground
what am i to wrap my bones around?
at least 'til the hangman cuts me down
from my home

i didn't mean to wear you thin
yeah i swear santiago lured me in
and i saw you get caught up in the spin
a circular pilgrimage

don't cross off what you lost
though she was flawed, i know
maybe there's something else there

i saw you lose another bet
don't turn reactionary yet
what does a reign of terror get
but a real bad rap?

so i just gave you a reprieve
took all your laughing misery
guess it was all apostrophe
directed against my ghost

that pose reddened our clothes
but we wouldn't show our skin
so we kept it all on

never knew why you arranged
to keep me at bay for half my age
but if you ever did open up the cage
i wouldn't leave

and when you're hanging by a thread
don't you belong to what you've said?
isn't it waiting in your bed
every night

applaud, yeah we were wrong
and life is too long
