Lyrics

The feast falls onto the boxer who comforts a thief
Who clings to the author, gritting her teeth
She's watched by a killer, who carries a child
Dropped by his mother, she ran for her life
The boy holds on to his boyfriend starting to weep
For a long lost lover who died in her sleep
The end has come early, look what it brought
No final horses, no god

Hold me as though it's the end of the earth
When the signal sounds for the fake rebirth
We have nothing to show, no chapter or verse
So will you hold me as though it's the end of the earth

Lyrics continue below...

The earth is strewn with skeletons in hideous heaps
Skull upon skull till the edge of the sea
And the great gold sun has set on our bones
Clutching each other evermore

Hold me as though it's the end of the earth
When the signal sounds for the fake rebirth
We have nothing to show, no chapter or verse
So will you hold me as though it's the end of the earth
