lyrics

blood drying as they go from door to door
have you seen them before?

eyes are two slits only painters can paint
do i need your permission to faint?

in the shadows of giants, stars explode
the skin is tearing to the bone

walk down the road with your name
when I cease to exist, who will you blame?

disguise your memories as happiness
escape in the thought of nothingness

i can see men marching in your eyes
taking your heart by surprise, by surprise

weep in holy places
oh no, oh no!

weep in holy places
oh no!

the riot squad is restless
they beat the daylight out of the sun, out of the sun

no one wants to know what's in the pockets of thieves
only the night can hear your pleas

watch every corner & every sign
christ & kerosene watch them shine, watch them shine

disguise your memories as happiness
escape in the thought of nothingness

i can see men marching in your eyes
taking your heart by surprise

weep in holy places
weep in holy places
oh no, oh no,
oh no, oh no!

weep in holy places
