Lazarus

  • As the cheerless towns pass my window
    I can see a washed out moon through the fog
    And then a voice inside my head breaks the analogue
    And says

    Follow me down to the valley below
    You know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

    I survived against the will of my twisted folk
    But in the deafness of my world the silence broke
    And said

    Follow me down to the valley below
    You know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
    Follow me down to the valley below
    You know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

    My David don't you worry
    This cold world is not for you
    So rest your head upon me
    I have strength to carry you

    (Ghosts of the twenties rising)
    (Golden summers just holding you)

    Follow me down to the valley below
    (Follow me follow me down)
    You know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
    Follow me down to the valley below
    (Follow me follow me down)
    You know
    Moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul

    Come to us, Lazarus
