lyrics

When our dear lord cried
"Let there be light!"
Even that could not make you wake
You were far beyond
the breath of life that most creatures take

If you try to blame me now,
If you try to blame me now
I'm crying foul.

Oh aluminum house,
where I room with each
Each different part of me
From the corners of my mind
and the minds of those
who claim to see.

The wind and the howl
and the snakes, my God!
How they make you shake!
I didn't build you but
your chalky, screechy shudders
I won't forsake

And if you try to blame me now,
If you try to blame me now
I'm crying foul.

Oh aluminum house,
where I room with each
Each different part of me
From the corners of my mind
and the minds of those
who claim to see.

For every ghost
Trapped in that place
Between the river and the sea
And the different discarded girls,
wrapped in tarps
and washed up on the beach:

Every ghost that lives in you,
every ghost that lives in you
is me.
