Have you ever seen a map laid flat
Four corners pinned back
All the lines in the legend in black
So clear that you feared it was nearly all in your mind

And the phrase that fell from my lips left a rip
From the top of your shoulders to the point of your hip
And the feeling that you get
As if God exists he's really unkind

But it's not what you want
To say when you're losing
All the meanings lost in the choosing
The right side, the wrong side
The side that's been winning
Forget the words, look back to the beginning

My childish bride
Oh, how I miss your face
Sometimes I see my life slip by
Across your face

There's an ocean on land
There's a plan, there's a plan
There's a fifty foot tower running power over sand
There was a city on a hill, it was a thrill
But the lights are all gone

Now we stare at each other
Like a sister to a brother
Like a pusher to a shover
Like a secret to a cover
Like a lover to a lover under covers
With the stereo on

But it's not what you said
To me when you were leaving
Oh, this massive body as we're heaving
The right way, the wrong way
The way that they taught us
Forget your words, remember they got us

My childish bride
Oh, how I miss your face
Sometimes I see my life slip by
Across your face

Tell me are you real
Do you feel, do you steal
These moments you reveal
With those eyes that can't conceal
Were you wronged
Was your song just some clever thing that you made up

'Cause the words are just right
And I could listen all night
I could whisper, I could bite
I could write, I could write
I could sing, I could cling
There's not a single thing I'd ever give up

But it's not what you meant
To me when you were leaving
Oh, these massive bodies are heaving
The right way, the wrong way
The way that they taught us
Forget yourself, remember they bought us

My childish bride
Oh, how I miss your face
Sometimes I see my life slip by
Like a taste
Of death
