The Walking Dead

lyrics

The wraiths of correction
are editing their way
through the tenebrous kaleidoscope
you sleep in every day
They’ll find your place of hiding
and they’ll find out where you’ve been
Then they’ll take a pound of
finely ground
scar-tissue for your sins
These specters of justice
will uncover your eyes
then they’ll scavenge through
the ghost town you
clumsily disguised
as a bustling new haven
for the clever and the dead
There’ll be nothing left
inside your head
to cover your loose ends

They just want to calm your fraying nerves
They just want to be your comforters
They just want to clear your aching head

They just want to calm your fraying nerves
They just want to be your comforters
They just want to wake the walking dead
the walking dead
