We had fun with this track choosing to leave all instruments behind except for percussion and melodica. I am singing through a victrola horn for one of the last verses.


Every bell the is ringing, every saw that cuts the wood.
There's a girl some where crying and a boy misunderstood.
The sink is full of dishes and the sky is caving in.
I pound another nail in the cross every time I sin.


Stack the wood pile, spread the straw
Butcher the last chicken. Pull the dead tooth from my jaw.

Like a song that's forgotten, like a key that's been lost.
Every single flower died in last nights hard frost.
Stack up all my kisses, melt away like a bar of soap.
You'll know where to find me, at the end of my rope.


Now the ship it is sinking, the sky is caving in.
Our hearts go right on beating while the snow is blowing in.
So grab your winter coat dear and throw you dice away.
The storm clouds have gathered and it looks like judgement day.


Now I am crying. I know my soul is lost.
My heart black as the crow I know how much my sin has cost.
So make me a bed of oak leaves that I might sink down in.
My heart it is the cushion and you are the pin.
