LyricsEdit

Two-headed boy
All floating in glass
The sun it is passed now it's blacker than black
I can hear as you tap on your glass
And I am listening to hear where you are
I am listening to hear where you are

Two-headed boy
Put on Sunday shoes
And dance cross the room to accordion keys
With the needle that sings in your heart
Catching signals that sound in the dark
Catching signals that sound in the dark
They will take off your clothes
And they'll be placing fingers in the notches in your spine
And all, when all is breaking
Everything that you can touch is
Silent, sleeping alone now
Already gone

Two-headed boy
There's no reason to grieve
The world that you need's wrapped in gold silver sleeves
Left beneath Christmas trees in the snow
I will show you and leave you alone
Watching spirals of white softly flow
In the city as you go
They will take off your clothes
And they'll be placing fingers in the notches on your spine
And all, when all is breaking
Everything that you can keep is
Silent, sleeping alone now
And already gone
