lyrics

I trudged
mud filling up my eyes
I was in the front
with the least capable minds
but, surprise
I'm the only one who lived
concealed
under a pile of bodies

I know what it is to play dead
I know what it is to play dead
under bodies toppling over
over and over
they saved my life

so I set to work
we must make the dead dignified
each and every
face I see, I use my fingers to gently close their eyes

then I walked with
one hand pushing away the ground
one hand
one hand pushing away the ground
the other hand
the other hand
holding my insides down


they're over, one-by-one
I neatly laid them on the lawn
I combed their hair
in gentle streaks
finally resting

royal countess
her face, we love it so
cruel perfection
makes me sorry it's my time to go

I look without slinking away
this once
I look without slinking away
her face
carries me
her face
carries me
carries me to my grave

over, one-by-one
I neatly laid them on the lawn
I combed their hair
in gentle streaks
finally resting

over
the valley floor
slowly sinking
but you live, you linger on
you'll feed the blades of a different lawn
you'll feed the blades of a different lawn

you'll be a pile of bodies
you'll be a pile of bodies someday
