lyrics

light thoughts
in dark times
resist forever with our stupid lives
and your pyromania

throw another book upon the fire

let the curtains fall, the sell-by dates expire
walk me through the woodsmoke air
as the markets slide
madly free and unbelieving

turn tricks
skip flights
sit forever at my careworn side
burn all the lies once told

throw another book upon the fire

let the curtains fall, the sell-by dates expire
walk me through the woodsmoke air
as the markets slide
madly free and still believing

in the days when words were binding
at least some of the time
I come round on friday evening
(it's prime book burning time)
have a rant and then i'm fine

so let another reason to be mad
scurry up the screen among the passing fads
meet me on the road halfway
after darkness falls
stone cold skin, we'll soon be home to
throw another book upon the fire

let the curtains fall, the sell-by dates expire
sit within the woodsmoke air
as the markets slide
wild and free and unbelieving
