Shake the minute donkey with all
The less you climb the higher the fall
In a place where they talk and talk
The wolves will eat but the birds will starve

Lower the load down the way and into my arms
We'll stay in town here until lies start to feel human again

Swim backwards into her
Color that tree, watch it burn
Caught on the tea with you and me
We washed the small bones off in the sea
We need something to make it warm
Got so sick sleeping on the floor

(Got so sick sleeping on the floor)
(Got so sick sleeping on the floor)
(Got so sick sleeping on the floor)

She's looking at you through broken ice
She made our hearts sore
With a dagger wide worn
With a dagger wide worn

Shake the minute don't dream at all
The less you climb the higher the fall
In a place where they talk and talk
The wolves will eat but the birds will starve

I want to be your tea, sipping into my hands all day
(Not so fast) (Just a moment) (Get some safety) (Somebody ought)
I'll trade my mind for your heart and soul
You can have my butter, no you won't
Take it with you when you go
Take it with you when you go

Shake the minute don't dream at all
The less you climb the higher the fall
In a place where they talk and talk
The wolves will eat but the birds will starve

(Shake the minute don't dream at all)
(The less you climb the higher the fall)
(In a place where they talk and talk)
(The wolves will eat but the birds will starve)

It's never over
It's never over
It's never over
It's never over
It's never over
It's never over
It's never over

    Lyric CorrectionI think it might be "shake the men that don't dream at all". And broken ice makes sense, but "broken eyes" does too. But anyway, this song is so good :)

    General CommentShake the men that don't dream at all,
    The less you climb the higher the fall,
    In a place where they talk and talk,
    The wolves will eat but the birds will starve.

    Lower the load down the well,
    And into my arms,
    We'll stay in town here until lies,
    Start to feel human again.

    Swim backwards into her,
    Color that tree, watch it burn,
    Blood on the teeth with you and me,
    We washed the small bones off in the sea,
    We need something to make it warm,
    Got so sick sleeping on the floor.

    (Got so sick sleeping on the floor)
    (Got so sick sleeping on the floor)
    (Got so sick sleeping on the floor)

    She's looking at you through broken eyes,
    She made our hearts sore,
    With a dagger wide worn,
    With a dagger wide worn.

    Shake the en don't dream at all,
    The less you climb the higher the fall,
    In a place where they talk and talk,
    The wolves will eat but the birds will starve.

    I want to feel your teeth, sinking into my hands so deep
    I'll trade my mind for your heart and soul,
    You can have mine,but I know you won't,
    Take it with you when you go,
    Take it with you when you go.

    Shake the men don't dream at all,
    The less you climb the higher the fall,
    In a place where they talk and talk,
    The wolves will eat but the birds will starve.


    It's never over
    It's never over
    It's never over
    It's never over
    It's never over
    It's never over
    It's never over
