Broken dams and fading memories
Nights in blue with lights and sound
something moving in the distance
kill it when it comes around.

Lock it out and down forever
keep you heart a crying stone
look forever while they think
you think its fun to be alone.

Choking velvet, bitter laughter
watch and scream and bravery smile
just remember somehow it will
all be over in awhile.

Dance it out in tarantella
let it out to keep you hand
lock it up and burn it over
keep it quiet
keep it dead.
