sun above, watch us spin
like cable cars and
news we laugh about
down the road, by the bend
we're chasing black birds once again
soft and hollow
you were right, you were right
this black starry night
ends before we know
story's end, walk the ledge
our fingers and palms make a bridge
bend and hinge

i'm just a fool for
straight talk and moonlit skylines
i've turned all the clocks back
where'd time go?
i miss you so

cut your teeth, pull the sheet
an unforeseen queen
turns our hearts around
you're aware that collecting
the bones from this fantasy
leads to nowhere
on this ride, you and i
it is once, it is always
a wooden heart from the start
we will dually survive
on fodder

i'm just a fool for
straight talk and moonlit skylines
i've turned all the clocks back
where'd time go?
i miss you so

sun above, watch us spin
like cable cars and
news we laugh about
marionette, cut the string
he said what?
what you gonna play now?

on a string, on a string
the puppeteer sings
as we dance about
