lyrics

Quit pulling her dress, she ain't got no fight.
You're strung up by your feet with white Christmas lights.
You don't even know what she feels like
The absence of lightning before it strikes.
Been blacking out in all our old haunts
The barflies recognize me and they tie me in knots
Their sugary smiles keep playing our songs
Their thousands of eyes can't help but stare on

When a pale fire dies
As they're known to do
Put the pen in your mouth
and begin to chew
Until it inks your teeth
and you're doused all in blue
If heaven is real
Then you must be too

When it comes to deserving
I guess you're first in line
You're running the day while I'm run through with time
I just want to stake a claim on your mind
I'm the absence of lightning before it strikes

When a pale fire dies
As they're known to do
Put the pen in your mouth
and begin to chew
Until it inks your teeth
and you're doused all in blue
If heaven is real
Then you must be too
