Midnight is a palace
And I fear I have been dishonest
Leaning pencilly against the kitchen sink
I am ashamed of everything
All the love that I've abandoned
All the friends I took for granted
Now I drink my troubles neat
As you wait for me to come to sleep

Off in the back bedroom you lay still as a death sentence
Weighing heavily upon the inmates mind
I am astranged of everything
In these halls of whorey shadows
Of a life lived incomplete
We could of had a family
A littered legacy
Now instead of photo albums
It's a house of record sleeps
And it's coming down

Up above our heads I hear the creaking of a footstep
And the tick-tock of the cuckoo clock
I am afraid of everything
And as I peak around the corner
I spot a spectre with his scythe
Just another senseless lie
To end in one fell swoop
I was certain I was special
I guess my neurons hit the truth
I wish you'd lie to me tonight
Hold me and tell me I'm not so bad
Tell me I made some sort of difference
That our love is more than chance
Oh, I am coming down

    General CommentAccording to Tim himself:
    "We put the mastering folks through a minor hell, trying to get the closing second of the album to pair up seamlessly with the opening track, again, to create the loop, to feel as though the album has no beginning or end (but you gotta play it on repeat!). We also had the grand plan of creating one of those closed threads at the end of the vinyl version, so that the final rhythm of the song would play on indefinitely. Alas, we didn’t do sufficient planning in advance, the measures of the song didn’t line up properly with the length of the proposed closed thread."
