Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, stop (x 3)

More than once upon a time
The sterile day goes by
My hollow nest is cold and dark
Wallowing in war's delight

Those who robbed my cradle dig my grave
From a human to a human to a slave
I gave my only child to the skeleton line
He was blown away, away
To the awaiting night
And a true lullaby, true lullaby
I have earned
From what was sung, an awkward turn
A true lullaby, true lullaby
I have earned

Please
Take me back, please
The moon shivers in its sleep as I beg the trees
And I walk amongst the dead
I can't get this swan song out of my head

We're all walking in line
Down the skeleton line
Down the skeleton line
Oh, oh, oh, my darling
Climb out of the earth be here now, come on yeah
Don't want you to know this hole, my darling
Let me take you home

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, stop

Standing at the wishing well
Empty feels so deep
How could things have gone so well?
As when I rocked my child to sleep
Is it the death of Earth?
The end of wine?
The end of love?
The death of birth?
And give me mine
Give me mime
Give me mine
Give me more

If you got to kill yourself to live
Are you better off dead?
Am I a little crazy, a little crazy in the head?
I gave my only child to the skeleton line
He was blown away, away
To the awaiting night
And a true lullaby, true lullaby
I have earned

Please
Take me back, please
The moon shivers in its sleep as I beg the trees
And I walk amongst the dead
I can't get this swan song out of my head

We're all walking in line
Down the skeleton line
Down the skeleton line
Oh, oh, oh, my darling
Climb out of the earth be here now, come on yeah
Don't want you to know this hole, my darling
Climb out of the earth be here now, come on yeah
Oh, oh, oh, my darling,
Climb out of the earth be here now, come on yeah
Don't want you to know this hole, to ashes
We all follow down this broken road, come on yeah
Let me take you home


We're all walking in line
Down the skeleton line
Down the skeleton line
Oh, oh, oh, my darling
Climb out of the earth be here now, come on yeah
Don't want you to know this hole, to ashes
We all follow down this broken road, come on yeah

Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme, stop
