lyrics

Back at square one
(turning the clock round)
Ring Liberty Bell
(for you to hold)
My name’s not Franklin
(yearning a town)
If I’m born i can’t tell

The city weeps
City that i love
It’s guard is down
When the trees flower

Declarations
(turning the clock round)
Deep in the blood stream
(forming in you)

The city weeps
City that i love
Then you split yourself in two

I saw less anger
I saw less pain
Laid it to rest
I see you again
Made me think with a creatures brain
I see right through you all the same

Back at square one
(Gramecy gates)
A thousand paces
(room full of paints)

I see less anger
I see less pain
One dose too many misguiding my brain
It makes an earthling feel so ashamed
I see right through it all the same.

We laid your fathers body in the sunbeams
Don’t you worry about acceptability
Fancy cart you’ll see he will go out in.

If they damn a good soul...

Made my bed
On a rock in the rain
I made my bed
On a rock in the rain

The city weeps
City that i love
Why do you split yourself in two?

Lead me away
From the kingdom of fables
I’m done living life
Under the table
I can only think with an animal mind
That bleeds true colour in electrical light
I see less anger
I see less pain
One dose too many misguiding my brain
It makes a body feel so ashamed
I see right through you all the same.
