"Wide-Eyed, Legless" as written by and Laura Veirs....
Down among the dead the wide-eyed
And the legless only half ahead
Half a mouth to laugh in the porthole
With the mold and faded epitaphs

Will you evermore tie up my hair with velvet bows
Will you evermore pull out the splinters from my toes
I don't think so

Out in the hornet rain the swarming stingers
Pumping poison through my veins
Lying on the star-cross lovers map
Take the beating, lash, lash for lash

Will we evermore kiss on the boardwalk's fading rail
In the light of the waves and the comet's waning tail
I don't think so

No more looking back, looking back
Looking back, faded epitaph
No more looking back, looking back
Looking back, faded epitaph
No more looking back, looking back
Looking back, faded epitaph
No more looking back, looking back
Looking back, faded epitaph

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics. From the insert :) * where corrections are

    Down among the dead
    The wide-eyed and the legless, only half a head
    Half a mouth to laugh in the porthole
    With the *mold and* faded epitaphs

    Will you ever more tie up my hair with velvet bows?
    Will you ever more pull out the splinters from my toes?
    I don't think so

    Out in the hornet rain the swarming stingers
    Pumping poison through my veins
    *Lying* on the star-crossed lover's map
    Take the beating lash, lash for lash

    Will we ever more kiss on the boardwalks fading *rail*?
    In the light of the waves and the comet's waning tail
    I don't think so

    No more looking back, looking back, looking back
    Faded epitaph
    No more looking back, looking back, looking back
    Faded epitaph
    No more looking back, looking back, looking back
    Faded epitaph
    No more looking back, looking back, looking back
    Faded epitaph
