Across this frozen lake
I've heard a pack of feral dogs howling at the moon
I used to know the pitch by heart at which they crooned
But it's sharper now

And in the tree, in the green above our heads
I used to feel the birch leaves rattle through my spine
And just for a moment, like I could turn back time
Well what is the future now

So beyond these ugly hills
I've seen a square where politician's signs are hung
I knew their campaign slogan in a foreign tongue
But it's nonsense now

And back in my hometown
I remember girls whose bodies I adored
I knew their names just like then knew my revolving door
But there's strangers now

So above the hum of this bar tonight
I think I heard you say there's only room for one
You don't know which one of us is dying young
But I'm sober now
