lyrics

Reel

All it is, is synthesis
the field of golden grain.
And all it says is: "Bring the wind!
So I can sing my name!"

But the need was seamless,
which seems impossible.
And the needle sees this
and sees what's never sewn.

Come to the edge of the sea
where it's glow, glowing;
when the dogs come, they're following me
they say "Go, just go in!"

You can see in the darkness
with the lamp in the fold of the coat,
And I was being self conscious
when I told you I'd go it alone.

Long they lay
alone
awake
and long may they still dream.
And I'm sorry the sum
wasn't one
of the wonders
you know
you're owed,
but for every gem
there's a hundred of them
to say no

And the war is through
they lied to you
And the coin is cut in two
they lied to you
And your love will have no use
they lied to you

And to them it's all truth
these lies to you
