lyrics

Once i sung one growing, now i sing one down
all the ways of knowing seem so far away now
with a heart and a hope and an understanding none could own
i used to sing one growing, now i sing one down

Machines ate my heart so i carved one out of stone
its bigger than in used to be, but very very cold
blood goes in and comes out black,
its hard and heavy like a heart attack,
I used to have a beating heart, now i have a stone

Lions took my fingers and turned them all to leaves
sand falls on through my hands like flour in a sieve
can't hold nothing down like a king with a problem ain't got no crown
once i held mine down, now they're leaves dead brown

Spirits have gone away and left this house alone
the corridor is empty the walls bleached dry bones
a body don't exist without an eye to reflect from
and the soul divided always flies and leaves you well alone

The soul divided always flies and leaves you well alone
