I cannot face the past,
Id rather face the dark.
Dont know what to say,
Dont know where you are.
Is love too strong a god?
How long do we have to go?
Ever tempted by
How far wed have to fall
To feel that way again.
I come back for the farm.
I would have met you there,
But I got terribly lost.
You waited there so long;
Finally you walked off.
And I just passed the road;
The road I should have turned on.

On your mark
You have my word
That Ill return
If you dont look back,
And off well go.
As it was on earth,
So shall it be sold.
So shall it be.

I was in the shed
Waiting for the ram to sleep.
I just combed my hair
So that maybe youd like me.
And everything to all,
And all that fades away.
But I can see you on
Yeah, I can see you on

On your mark
You have my word
That Ill return
If you dont look back.
And off well go.
As It was on earth,
So shall it be sold.
So shall it be sold.

Lights blown out
All our bags
Sold our capes
To make it dark
Beat the sword
Into the plow
Take my place
Take it now

And go back to the races,
And on with the day.
Back where the sacred are.
Back to the races,
And off with their heads
Let the kings horses fall.
Run! The fall might arrive
One minute please ma
Before we go inside
Its not dark to me,
No its not dark at all.
And all the confederate kings
Are waiting in the hall.

On your mark
You have my word
That Ill return
If you dont look back
And off well go
As it was on earth
So shall it be sold,
So shall it be sold.

And go back to the races,
And on with the day.
Back where the sacred are.
Back to the races,
And off with their heads
Let the kings horses fall.

Back to the races,
And on with the day.
Back where the sacred are.
Back to the races,
And off with their heads
Let the kings horses fall.

Back to the races,
And on with the day.
Back where the sacred are.
Back to the races,
And off with their heads
Let the kings horses fall.

One more time around,
One more race to go.
Send my name to the owls
Will I see you far below?
Please dont turn around
Cause theyll take me back away
And I can feel the moon
Dragging me towards the race.
