She was always afraid
Her joy just something else to mourn
She even had a radio
That only broadcast thunderstorms
She took little pills for the planes
I guess that made her fun for a while
For her the friendly skies
Were like being put on trial
Everything here moves toward the invisible

You trust people when you know
Yeah, what kind of sinner they'll be
But the broken ones who give you love
Are the ones you never see
And she prayed all the time
It was the only thing she owned
God's one thousand and one strings
Told her she wasn't alone
Everything here moves
Fades into the gleam
Moves toward the invisible
Flowing downstream

I never planned to be a whore
I guess spare changing was too hard
Nothing left but who you are
And the millions that you scarred
Everything here moves
Fades into the gleam
Moves toward the invisible
Falling downstream
