The laws of Purgatory pulled your train off the track
Spoken music playing; loss you can't take back
The laws of Purgatory are written on your pillowcase
It's the windows rattling, it's no one in your embrace

I know your story - I won't tell anyone
I'll keep you free of harm
I know I'm a little shallow...

Always a new dance theme for the Memorial Disco Band
No one wants the things you see, no one wants to understand

I know your story - I won't tell anyone
I'll keep you free of harm
It's 'cause I'm a little shallow...

Gabriel lost his trumpet, embarrassed to be seen to feel
So you bury yourself, you bury yourself busy standing still

I'll keep you free of harm.
I know I'm a little shallow...
...but I don't know what else to do with my arms
