  • A town of disrespect
    The trains are wrecked
    The night is younger then us
    Nowhere is anywhere else
    You keep to yourself
    Stirring the dregs where I have laid
    The exit signs are flashing
    Dead ends they won't come to life anymore
    I pledge the rest
    I should have guessed
    Your love was hanging by threads
    Tongues tied under the moon,
    My love is a room of broken bottles
    And tangled webs
    The misers wind their minds
    Like clocks that grind their gears
    On and on
    And if its meant
    Some accident
    Some coincidence
    Crumbs fall out of the sky
    When you wander by
    The dust clouds blow
    Nobody's home
    Oh won't you lay my bags
    Upon on the funeral fire and sing it again

    Oh won't you lay my bags
    Upon on the funeral fire and sing it again Writer/s: Beck Hansen
