We use to waltz outside before the war
beneath the stars we'd spin around the floor
and every morning watch the soldiers leave
in rows lined up like perfect bowling pins

and here, it's just like a costume ball
with lights out and masks on
the air is thicker than London's fog
Ida...don't wait up...

We used to sleep at night before the war
hum to Strauss and never lock the doors
but ships were sunk and someone took the fall
and strung us out like useless paper dolls

and here, alarm clocks are cannonballs
while Judas laughs and, morphine calls
the air is thicker than London's fog
Ida...don't wait up...
