lyrics

I was a strange man in a dying house
I was trying down here I was giving out. I was
phoned down to the bad scene, I am alive
I was in the car when silence set

I was a dead man in a writhing house
I was writing on the end, it was spilling out
When you don't have all these empty days
I had already drowned, I had done it

Lead man in a fiery house
I was life-like hard, with a careless shout
Well you don't leave iron in the shed all night
Well you don't bleed iron on the bed oh

Break down break down
where we already are
break down break down
I wanna cut a curve through it

Break down break down
where we already are
break down break down

Was a mad man in the in-and-out
I set sunlit fires to a trail of doubt
When you won’t come back into your body in time
Well you won't be there when we run it

It’s the night side, I was drilling down
It was a fall down here, it was a caving out Quit it.
When you don't want this, someday's the day,
They'll want radiation scars oh

Break down break down
where we already are
break down break down
I wanna cut a curve through it

Break down break down
where we already are
break down break down
I wanna touch a nerve to it





---
Salt fog, clean fade out, dissolve me into the sky
I’ll cable down now, just dial me onto the line
Build shells, break ground now, spread north until I hit light.
Shot full of fake rounds, I might get better
The sound, the cards, the ashes of letters,
The metal and breath that copies the weather,
It might have been rust or blood on my feathers
