Lyrics

Yeah you're looking good
All the ropes that held you down unravel
Like Mission District pigeons
And now you're God's servant, the one
With a holy knife on the holy throat
I love that leather head band
I love the feathers, man, you're so handsome
I bet you can translate all the sidewalk cracks
You can hear the wailing of the ghosts

All I know is I betrayed you
By not dragging hell to find you

And boom your eyes are open
You're no one's dog - you can't be pet
You're packing weapons from the future
And pity isn't one of them
You're flashing secret pirate maps
Abracadabra is in the air
You're the rainbow made of skulls
Made by fire, held by wire

All I know is I betrayed you
By not dragging hell to find you
But beautiful you're always there
Beautiful, your light burning there

I know I'm bullshit because I like sleep
and I like social drinking
and I don't like going past the point
of no return

All I know is I betrayed you
By not dragging hell to find you
But beautiful you're always there

But beautiful you're always there
