Lyrics

Bracketed diamonds, billowing smoke
A terrible heft behind that pitchfork
A torn up napking, uneaten meat
A bloody steak knife, bunions cut off the feet
A crippled Arab, face in the street
Searching the asphalt for her missing teeth
(She mumbles something...)

When it had fallen and everything had failed
But still a sense of jubilation
She took a beating and coughed into her hand
It settled into some jubilation

She rode her bicycle down to the place where her husband was found
He stood up and screamed
"Where's your veil? You're missing teeth! Look what you've done!
And these other men, my friends:
They see your disgrace! I'd cut your tongue off, if God was blind!"
She pedaled off toward the harbor
and got her dress caught in the chain.

When it had fallen.

Bracketed diamonds, billowing smoke
A terrible feeling as you stare past the boats
The moon is rotten, filled with holes
Getting smaller, dripping on the bay and the road

When it had fallen.
