Their covers
Coming off in Winchester tonight
And the pale stone grey King
walks with his pale stone grey wife

They'll see through the tombs
Until we come we turn on the light
When they sleep in death again

And yours was the hand that came off it through the blue
When I woke on a table, and mucusy and new
I said "yes, I would love go walking with you
Until I sleep in death again"

And the arm you stretched to me was thick around the wrist
There was blood on your breath
There was alcohol and piss

Out in the land where the people make their hopes
Not with their hand but with money that they own
You carry me down to the sand to let me know
All the things I did not know until then

And the arm you stretched to me was thick around the wrist
There was blood on your breath
There was alcohol and piss
But my heart was a diamond as big the Ritz
You crumbled and fold in my hand

Their covers coming off in Winchester tonight
And the cracks in the sky give an unfamiliar light
And the world you have shown me
Is dead beneath the ice
And I wish I could see you again.

And yours was the hand that came off it through the blue
When I woke on a table, and mucusy and new
I said "yes, I would love go walking with you
Until I sleep in death again"

And you do the all the things
That you think yoy have to do
Make a mark on the world so the world remembers you
And I will wait to go walking in two
Until I sleep in death again.
