"Claire" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
Pray to the simple machines
That do not rely on belief
The softness of steam and of gears
Their energy is surely pure

The kindness of engines is not in you
Claire you do it perfectly

The water is all on it's own
It goes where it wants to go
The telephone can't dry it up
And sleeplessness won't make it slow

If opposites are the best chance of hope
Claire you do it perfectly

The line straight to defeat is based upon belief
That's how we are sustained
On pretty girls make graves

Sweetly you punctuate weakness
Claire you do it perfectly
The highway it helps to forget
The straightness it doesn't betray
It lies on in where it lies
It's courtesy is it exists

That's how we are sustained
On pretty girls make graves
The line straight to defeat is based upon belief

Confirmed and cataloged
Your lies
Claire you do it perfectly

    General Commentthat’s how we are sustained

    does this have anything to do with the band, Pretty Girls Make Graves?

    General Commenti think the Pretty Girls Make Graves reference is to the song by The Smiths of the same title.
