lyrics

We rearrange the chambers of this heart
But somehow the light's still getting through
Close your eyes
It's dark but they still know it's you
Somehow the light's getting through

Brass coins and black lace
And doll hair in the suitcase
Did you fade away at the ending like you did at the start?
Get your story straight….
Before it falls apart
Rearrange the chambers of this heart
Rearrange the chambers of this heart
Rearrange the chambers take it back to the start

We bury the light, We bury the light
We bury the light, We bury the light
We bury the light and it's dark now

Like a name on a tombstone
When you sweep away the dust
Like Blackbirds singing
When you peel back the crust
We sent eight me to the graveyard
But nine come back
And the yellow sun ain't yellow
When it's black black
There's a full moon
An unexplained phenomenon
A black out
The ritual we rely upon
The blood flows backwards
No matter what you do
Somehow the light's still getting through

We bury the light, we bury the light
It's dark now but it don't feel right
We bury the light, we bury the light
It's dark now but it don't feel right
We bury the light, we bury the light
It's dark now but it don't feel right
Etc.
