The heavens are smiling upon us
The great, white, toothless grin of the newborn and the dying here among us
We are starting the living again

You have stopped your shivering
You won't go to the lake in the mirror again
The sea stops tonight and all her little children are hanging tight
As I have stopped my moon-walking, glad to say
It's oh so tired, and so am I, of stalking yesterday

The past will rust in peace
The past will rust in peace

As the heavens are smiling upon us
The goodnight, toothless grin of the newborn and the dying here among us
We are starting the living again

It's been one lousy couple of months, but now we are coming out of the dumps
And everything is calling our names, though the sunshine units are here to stay
Like Adam makes small talk with Eve on their six-month anniversary
They will go home in separate cars
Yes, they will sleep under separate stars

You have stopped your shivering
You won't go to the lake in the mirror again
The sea stops tonight and all her little children are sleeping tight
As I have stopped my moon-walking, glad to say
It's oh so tired, and so am I, of stalking yesterday

The past will rust in peace
The past will rust in peace

As the heavens are smiling upon us
The ghost white, shit-eating grin of the newborn and the dying here among us
We are starting the living again
We are starting the living again
We are starting the living again
