lyrics

One last time now, I see her naked body laid out before me
Once appealing, it now turns my stomach to look upon her form
Her body so mangled and her skin so torn
Like someone who's had to die before they ever had a chance to be born

When the sky has opened up
All the colors flooding through
Planets pushed out of the way
Over velvet tides of blue
Deep and heavy, black and gray
Wires sparking underground
Ocean seeping into cities
And I laugh as I am drowned.

I could have told her, I could have warned her it would turn out this way
I could have screamed it, but she'd never listen to a single word I say
I could have told her, I could have warned her it would turn out this way
I could have screamed it, but she'd never ever hear a single word I say

When the sky has opened up
All the colors flooding through
Planets pushed out of the way
Over velvet tides of blue
Deep and heavy, black and gray
Wires sparking underground
Ocean seeping into cities
And I laugh as I am drowned.

Birthday dungheap, my mom's cooking
It's another fine ride in a car with wheels and radio
Gone to the zoo, be back in five minutes, baby
Sit on my knee - I'm Santa.

When the sky has opened up
All the colors flooding through
Planets pushed out of the way
Over velvet tides of blue
Deep and heavy, black and gray
Wires sparking underground
Ocean seeping into cities
And I laugh as I am drowned.
