Penny black
And tarnished over
Watch the framing fold
In the cracks
We mine for silver
When we're flush with gold
Turn the screw
The hand works five points
Fingers toward the sun
Taking two
For every new coin
When all we've earned is one

Every step moves forward
Every step moves
Every step moves

Places for cold mines
I trace my old lines
I wait in low light
Until I find
Hints of the old flames
Familiar cold ways
Distant and unrequited
You know the kind

Lily white
And pulled in pieces
Quiet does it good
And inside
The noise increases
As you know it should

Every step moves forward
Every step moves
Every step moves
Every step moves forward
Every step moves
Every step moves

So precious
This kill screen
Our love is
Divided
So much is
Left unseen
When double sided
All code
And no distinction
Nothing on the skin
All told
In all depictions
Only left to live

The search is sanctified
We find it side by side
The search is sanctified
We find it side by side
The search is sanctified
We find it side by side

    General CommentI'm certain this song is about Donkey Kong. Or, at least, the King of Kong documentary.
