Lyrics

You can dream about the dead
As they walk through the night
With their sweet kisses
Wrapped in rose colored pillows

Why did this come up so quick
A spark moves in a dry world
As if something was just switched on
And then disappeared

Smile for the restless stranger
I borrowed ninety cents from the store
Like a million dollars
Send me running away
Send me running away

Out of this warm house
Out of these warm friends
Right into the arms of this sick feeling
I run right to the arms of this sick feeling

They just say go themselves
If it comes to a choice in this world
Well you can throw the decks in the air
When the air cuts your heart

Yeah I’ll invite you somewhere
and give you my sad smiles
Into the tall dirty land
More than buying all the miles
We’re surrounded by the fight
We who can see an amber light

When you were born, were your lips already mine?
When you were born
Down the same silent streets, bordered by disaster
Down the same silent streets, bordered by the fight
We were colored like candy canes
We were colored like rays of pain
We were glowing like justice’s fire
We were laughing with desire
And the symbols of the street shaking hour by hour
When you were born
When you were born
When you were born

Out of this warm house
And through the empty city
It fills my love with hunters who
Who will take me, take me, take me
Take me, take me
