AND WE SAY HELLO
THAT'S ALL WE KNOW
EVERY DAY IN THE MEADOW
THEY TRY TO CLOSE UP THE WINDOW
THEY TALK ABOUT SINCERITY
IN THE DARKNESS
AND SOMETHING GROWS HUGE
AND IT COMES TO ME FOR REAL
I BELIEVE IN THE HOLY LIE
AND WE SAY GOODBYE
THAT'S WHY WE CRY
THEY TALK ABOUT SINCERITY
IN THE DARKNESS
WELL THIS DREAM IS FINE
AND SOMETHING GROWS HUGE
AND IT COMES TO ME FOR REAL
I BELONG TO THE HOLY LIE
MY TEETH HAVE BEEN SHARP
BUT NOW THEY'VE FALLEN
WE SHOULD PLAY IN THE MEADOW
COME ON AND DRINK TOMORROW
SHE SAID GOODBYE ON A TAPE
SHE SHOULD HAVE RACKED HER BRAINS
I CALL THE MERMAID ONE MORE TIME
SHE SPEEKS FLUENTLY LIKE A DRAGONFLY
