lyrics

Sea anemones moan from her old purple crown
when she's alone yes
dreaming to drown or to strangle

Like a periscope stuck and the lights of the mirrors are tangled

Gathering rust in the mirrors of love
is the face I don't trust yes
the great envy of gods and nations

Through a telescope darkly the stars have abandoned their stations


And then she danced her way
into my blood to say
"It will never never be light
if you stay"


Why'd she call for me then when the water was high
with crystal balls, yes
disco eyes that outgrew her

What the stethoscope heard in the grass was the will to outdo her

Her eyes look alive
and make Buckingham Palace guards shiver

Like a kaleidoscope tangling lights in a black river


And then she danced her way
into my blood to say
"It will never never be light
if you stay"
