lyrics

Gold, alone
clinging to a stem
Pretty soon this will be
a skeleton
Metropolises before
silent and smoldering
Above the wild giant wailed
Never will I do that again

So strange
to be shaped by such
strange men
Elizabeth, explain what
the writer meant

That God is the one who changed.

The General,
Buck toothed, bright eyed
frothing red.
Baltimore, you on the floor
me on the edge of the bed
We saw him in one
brutal gesture tear
that rabbit open
You turned to me, “Isn’t this
Supposed to be for children?”

So strange
to be shaped by such
strange moments
Elizabeth, the train
when will I see you again?

Will you tell me your mind has changed?

So strange
was I shaped for just this moment?
Elizabeth, explain
what the writer meant.
