The bed it was warm
Nettles and ferns
The evening it chokes
The candle it burns

This disguise covers
Bitter lies
Repeating the joke
The meaning it dies

Pass me your coat
I'm not afraid to leave
I'm letting you know
I know what you need

I'll turn you around
This beautiful town
And then you'll believe
When your eyes they deceive you

It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
Don't lose it

It's getting colder outside
Your rented space
They shadow box
And they paper chase

It never stops
And we'll never learn
No hope without dope
The jobless return

The bankers have bailed
The mighty retreat
The pleasure it fails
At the end of the week

You take it or leave
Or what you receive
Till what you receive
Is eternity leave

It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
It's easy, don't let it go
Don't lose it

Incandescent light adores
In adolescent menopause
In little clicks you got the music stops
The needle sticks and the penny drops

The summer's gone before you know
The muffled drums of relentless flow
You're looking at stars that give you vertigo
Suns will burn and then dust will blow

Honey scars I'll keep you near
Our blood is gold nothing to fear
We killed the time and I love you dear
Kiss of wine we'll disappear

The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
