lyrics

the nighttime she slips out of all of our glasses
put on your slippers and open the doors
i still don't know if tomorrow will happen
but i can't go on thinking like this no more

i've heard it said
that seraphim burn calories like celery
they demand no service
in the night
smoldering soul with rubber boots
in a garbage dump with no jersey
you can scream forever silently

eternity follows me into the shower
drips down my back like a perfect storm
as I read the paper she looks over my shoulder
kicks me in her sleep but she keeps the bed warm

i've heard it said
that seraphim burn calories like celery
they demand no service
in the night
smoldering soul with rubber boots
in a garbage dump with no jersey
you can scream forever silently

the nighttime she drips onto all of our ashes
cremate your feelings and leave at the door
fill up unleaded and drive to the edge of the world
she follows she'll never be far
behind

she takes an iron spike and drives
in your feet in place of peace of mind
she takes the wonder from your life
