The summer stained your lips the darkest berry hue
When we got caught after our curfew
And led to a wall stained dark red
Such cruelty to die without being fed
Before the end we had remembered everything
All the dreams forgot upon wakening
We remembered who we had been
We saw how our lives were back then

You and me and all the people we were

You were the minotaur and I was the maze
We had lived in them good ol' Greek days
We saw the first trickle of the mighty Nile
We played with little Jesus when he was a child

Now further back, go further back
All wild and furry, our fates decided by the fury
Our home was an earthen tomb
Our souls buried to bloom
It seems that time ain't nothing but a womb

You and me and all the people we were
What's the point of you and me if we keep meeting like this?

They put a blindfold on and a cigarette in our mouths
We hear the click of a chamber and an exploding sound
We wake up and there ain't nothing but bedroom all around
And for the lives of us we could not remember what we found
