lyrics

The doctor's head won't stop shaking
Says he's never seen anything like this
The kids grow horns and they piss blood
In quarantine where mom can't kiss them

Young moms give up
You didn't ask for this

Her fingertips on the glass
Wonder how much time must pass until

The children's faces are books in the rain
Her daughter's voice is a bird call miles away

She takes the train but it breaks down
It's in the tunnel when it breaks down
Cell phones open, cigarettes lit
But they die and they extinguish

I'm all alone
at the center of the earth
Something's wrong with
Their birthday cakes and songs
Won't be sung here
We can't hear but we can seize
All my memories
Wrap them in the clinic's sheets
Paint them black

The train and riders gone for good
Her old friends fight ancient wars
The dreamless sleep of the dead
An evening sky with no stars
