lyrics

I can't sink underneath my sheets are made of lead
and I can't get the word your name out of my head
of my head
I can't fall asleep there's clawing at my door
my muddled brain recalls the times it came before
before I stepped into this town
mothers tell your children not to run into open arms
he's coming
he's coming back

prepare your finest linens
take fitful gulps of dramamine
the king of dreams returns today
everyone's laughing and cheering
the heavens smile on us today
but they can't see behind his teeth

I can't slip into the plushy feathered crag
there's footsteps in the hall
the doorknob's turning fast
oh too fast
she brought me baskets woven from the trees we knew
and when their stumps cried out she said
"our love was made from you
wasn't your sacrifice so nice"

prepare your finest linens
take fitful gulps of dramamine
the king of dreams returns today
everyone's laughing and cheering
the heavens smile on us today
but they can't see behind his teeth
