lyrics

I shot you in the chest
and left you in a wasteland
your shadow's coming back
not welcome in my dreams
I drag your open wood box
your frozen face, forever happy
It's time to let you go
and put your body down
now I know what I would do to you...

I'd use rosebuds for your hips
so young they never bloomed
a silk magenta scarf
I'd wrap around your tepid womb
your breasts I'd dye the color
of pastures in Greenland
I loved to hang in there
where time would never end
my lips on yours forever sealed
I'm ready to let go.

Psychodrama, hope it works,
I hope it takes your image
and feeds it to the birds
migrating far away
in tropical pursuit
while singing deep down from their chest
this melody for you

We brought you here with us
a boardwalk to the horizon
these warm and fruity sands
will soothe your bones away
dissolving your persistent echo
in sweet pineapple dreams
your voice will be our chirp
your eyes will be the ocean
and finally it will be time to
rest, rest, rest...

Psychodrama, hope it works,
I hope it takes your image
and feeds it to the birds
migrating far away
in tropical pursuit
while singing deep down from their chest
this melody for you
