You won't move
So I won't follow
This used and makeshift path.
Born to serve,
Born seductive
To regulate our surges.
You will lie close.
You will lie covered.
I won't stare
And I won't stall you
As you turn to make your stand
Among the walking apparitions
That fade among the living.
You will lie close.
You will lie covered.
I will force aside the common revelation
That we'll formalize this constant evolution.
Here were stand striped and starving
As a stooped and tailored man.
We buy our lives and learn to spend it with swift and held hands.
We're the answer that came before the goal.
We're no answer at all.
You and I were made for each other,
Like heroes fall we will fall,
You and I have made the mistake
To hear the call hear our call.
I'm a dreamer and you're a taker.
Sin for the soul and savor the labor.
Why are the kids and the cowards all in line?

    General CommentAs much as I'd like the world to know and appreciate how great Elliott is I would like their music all to myself.

    General CommentThis has got to be my second favorite song on False Cathedrals. Elliott has a unique and amazing sound unlike anyone else. I think this is about depending on someone or something to make decisions, and basically an outlook on how he views people, and how the one person you find is the one you will depend on most. :)

    General Commentactually i think the last line to the song is-
    "when will the kings and the cowards fall in line?" at least that is what was in the lyric sheets
