lyrics

Submit to solitude
Hide in your books
Just to live their lies
Their pleasures unfold
As you ponder your own
Fruitless in the moonlight

Now to all that’s untraveled
To the diamonds in the rubble
The grandeur of loneliness
You catalog your accidents
In careful phrases
Pressed between pages
For a love time renounced

Don’t retreat, not just yet
They’ll have your head for this

Yeah, you’re fighting this war on your own
One hundred years unknown
Someday she might see your face
And not turn away

In retrospect each caress
Now feels distant and cold
Our laughter died that season
But the solace one finds
In the words on a matchbox
Says otherwise because envy
Can be frightening

This is what happens
When men start fires
Desperate for answers
And yearning with desire
Get me out of my mind
Get me out of my mind

Don’t retreat, not just yet
They’ll have your head for this

Save your spine
Yeah, you’re fighting this war on your own
One hundred years unknown
Save your spine
As the radio cries your last rites
And fades into static
Someday she might find your touch
In a stranger’s embrace
