Yeah we ran through the streets like lions
In the twilight of our youth
But we slept on the steps like lambs
With our necks tender to the tooth

Then she feel down the well of the Chelsea Hotel
& horses lost their horns
& I froze in a pose I'd held for her
Since the day that I was born

Sex with ghosts
Sex with ghosts
Shipwrecks on golden coasts
I gave my life to Christ
At a discount price
Because it was broken

Yeah they buried her there in the garden
Behind the refinery
But the toil in the soil, the blood in the mud
Still binds her to me

If the suburbs burn first, loathsome & cursed
If they come with drums & horns
May He play reveille by the rocks & the spray
On the day that I am born

Sex with ghosts
Sex with ghosts
Shipwrecks on golden coasts
I gave my life to Christ
At a discount price
Because it was broken

I gave my life to Christ
At a discount price
Because it was broken
