lyrics

Sleepless and endless night
Are you living alone
Or with an unholy host
Of epigenetic ghosts?

Staggering down the hall
As they change the shape of the walls
Go only where allowed
Here in your haunted house
Take the spiral ladder down
Til you’re lost or found

Or just start over again
In the haze of the civil twilight
In roles we’ll re-write to the end
But that’s no way to live your life

Echoing over you
Never fading to black
Inexplicable appetites
Ancestral parasites
Bait you and gently bite
With their wrong and right

Price of their paradise
A glimpse, can you get it back
History’s not in the ground
It’s in your bloodstream, flowing round
Bleeds through like sound on sound

Or just start over again
In the haze of the civil twilight
In roles we’ll re-write to the end
But that’s no way to live your life


Can you see the end of never never again?
Fall back into the fold
Can you see the end of never never again?
You were born for the role

Internal
External
Eternal
Returning
Keeps turning
And turning

Or just start over again
In the haze of the civil twilight
In roles we’ll re-write to the end
But that’s no way to live your life
