She don't dream the way she used to dream
Before her body condemned itself to feeling like an empty building
One day she'll discover that the habits that she covets
Only smother the hopes that her heart will change

She broke her teeth on an unsheathed piece of hard-tasting candy
She closes her eyes at night
She can hear the cavalry go by
She can taste his tongue in her mouth and it's tasting like disease

She don't ever see what should be seen
Until the thing that should be seen is out of sight
She don't ever see what should be seen
Until the thing that should be seen is out of sight
She don't ever see what should be seen
Until the thing that should be seen is out of sight
She don't ever see what should be seen
Until the thing that should be seen is gone

Her fingers burn when she folds into play (?)
That a hunt for love ain't cut like the holes in her duvet
She ain't too certain that her psyche can take
Another season of hunters pretending to spare their prey

And her brains froze black
And her eyes rolled back
And her steps shellacked
She don't know what she's becoming

And her brains froze black
And her tongue rolled back
And her heart shellacked
She don't know what she's becoming

She don't dream the way she used to dream
Before her body condemned itself to feeling like an empty building
One day she'll discover that the habits that she covets
Only smother the hopes that her heart will change

She broke her teeth on an unsheathed piece of hard-tasting candy
She closes her eyes at night
She can hear the years she lost go by
She can taste his tongue in her mouth and it's tasting like deceit

And her brains froze black
And her eyes rolled back
And her steps shellacked
She don't know what she's becoming

And her brains froze black
And her tongue rolled back
And her heart shellacked
She don't know what she's becoming
She don't know what she's becoming
She don't know what she's becoming

    General CommentI can't swear by this, but I'm fairly sure the line is "...and his tears sting like disease" rather than "...and it's tasting like disease". I also think it's "Her fingers burn when she folds them away". It doesn't make much more sense, though, so I'm not positive. And I agree with ikefox, it definitely seems to be about drug abuse. Great song.

    My InterpretationSeems to be about a woman succumbing to drug addiction and other poor life choices.

    General CommentThe girl was raped by soldiers and still hears and senses them, and succumbs to drugs to deal with the memory.
