When I Awoke

lyrics

When I awoke
I saw them moving in
The vultures would descend
And circle back around again

I was hurried through a stall
Inside a rotten abattoir
Now I'm hanging by a thread
Underneath the diamond web

Thought I there is no end
Just a desert full of sand
Until I broke the hourglass
And blew away the wind

My arms are reaching for you
Caroline, falling through the sands of time
Where everything turns to dust

Dominoes
Dominoes are falling down
I'm gonna gather up the bones
Shake em up and shake em down

I was dancing at St. Luke's
And your skeleton was there
You moved so fast across the floor
You left it hanging in the air

You're always drifting to me
Caroline, I can see the blood in your eyes
Every tear rolling down turns to rust
