lyrics

It doesn't matter when my martyr comes,
she's been waiting too long,
cast me off with tiny oars,
burn out my heart,
water always runs in, from the cold chair I'm watching,
doesn't matter when she calls,
she's been waiting too long.

she's been sleeping in here,
in the same old rotting sheets,
I've been screaming so loud,
she's hears a whisper in the breeze,
life's been moving slowly moving these days,
I've been ageing in decades,
but she seems so peaceful here,
between the rotting and the oxygen.

then from far below,
she lights up like somebody,
somebody I knew.

tell me of the memories,
screaming distance of clawing undertow,
she lights a fire.

you don't recognise me ,
why don't you recognise,
seen you everyday for 40 years.

love you just the same,
or am i just telling myself that,
watching you wither,
not in body ,
but in mind.

then you left me.
but you return from time to time.
don't know which is crueller.

if there's a god he's got a wicked streak that I don't care for.

then from far below,
she lights up like somebody,
somebody I knew.

tell me of the memories,
screaming distance of clawing undertow,
she lights a fire.

I've been reading to you.
you know I've never been one for books.
I've been screaming to you.
just hoping you would catch the hook.
have I been waiting too long?
have I been singing the wrong song?

she lights a fire.
