  • All of the people
    All of those ordinary lives
    Building on the outskirts
    Of my mind
    They ride the Iron Pilgrim
    To holidays for the head
    If plans were hand grenades
    We'd all be dead

    It's dark
    It's dark where the roses grow
    There's something that you should know
    Before you see the light
    It's dark
    It's dark where the roses grow
    There's places I have to go
    Before I see the light

    Playing all five stages
    The festival of grief
    God and problems
    What can stop them realise
    The bottles in the drug store
    Were all just piss and ink
    The flags you wore
    Are rags under the sink Writer/s: Andrew Robert White, Benjamin Heyward Iii Allen, Charles Richard Wilson, James Rix, Nicholas Baines
