You were brave as a chessboard queen
But the shoe didn't fit your feet
Cover the mouth
Of the earth’s great cough
You can’t always get what you want

Do you lie in the driveway snow
Til you’re white as a bed sheet ghost
Bathed in the light of a star long dead
No one can tell how it ends

If you’re blind to love
What are you saying love
It doesn't amount to much
You’re holy with no ghost
If you’re blind to me
What do you say see
Shouldn't it always be happiness

Did you carve out your place in the world
For your white little bones of a bird
Crossed like a husk
and the Great Sea was low
I hope it’s all working out

If you’re blind to love
You shouldn’t try to love
It doesn't amount to much
You're holy with no ghost
If you’re blind to me
What do you say you see
Shouldn't it always be copious

Proud like a hunter with a bow
Cower like a prisoner below
I don’t sleep so well
I woke up
Here on the crowded seats
Of a bus
Cold as a husk
