Oh well, it's hard to look deep into your soul
Not everything you find will be perfect gold
There are ghosts and demons that hide in the dark
Oh, they wait till I find love and then they laugh

Oh, they know that my body is no way good enough
Know that my heart is no way strong enough
To bare the sorrow that love brings
Oh, when I coil in fear, oh, the demons sing

But it's a hollow love for a heart with no blood in its veins

Oh, it's a hollow love for a heart with no blood in its veins

Oh, there is no endless devotion
That is free from the force of erosion
Oh, and if you don't believe in God how can you believe in love?
When we're all just matter that will one day scatter
When peaceful the world lays us down

Oh, and finding love is a matter of luck
Oh, and unsettled lovers move from fuck to fuck
Oh, and compare their achievements like discussing bereavements
And compare their abrasions with romantic quotations
Oh, as peaceful the world watches down

But oh, we were blown out of the water
Oh, and we walk on the feet we have grown
Oh, we were given a heart of which love is a part
And we cornered the thing from which all life will spring
And it gave value to the world that surrounds us

But we consider the world just for a moment
Oh, and it's gone before we even know
Oh, but I'll follow it round, yeah, I'll follow it round
Oh, I'll follow it round, yeah, I'll follow it round
Till peaceful, the world lays me down
