Somewhere between the frozen layers sleeps a fragile women.
Waiting for her husband to remove the shards of glass.
The sun betrays the light that it once shed.
And daughter cuts the hair.
Tangled in a silver brush.
Spitting at the broken mirror.
I feel the movement of ghosts in the room.
She keeps a photograph locked in her mouth.
The smell of turpentine drips from the walls.
Forgive and forget.
You're not alone.
I've seen the dead arise.
The ice will someday thaw and she will wait no more.

    General CommentYes, it is. Also, on their website theres a little link to get in that changes, says a variety of things. One of them is "I want you inside me," which is also a line from wet hot american summer. Seems they're fans.

    General CommentAnyone know what he says between
    I feel the movement of ghosts in the room.
    and
    She keeps a photograph locked in her mouth.

    After he goes through all the lyrics then comes back to it the second time he says sumthing inbetween there.
