At the Graveyard

lyrics

are you shining?
is it a light that lasts forever?
Does it come from the sun?
are you bright enough to not forget you still see the shadow?
Well no .. that's no evidence
but this meant something different to all of us before

Listen, is it nothing but a challenge we just fear to fail?
Listen, is it nothing but a very loud and pretty dodgy pretence?
maybe this is nothing but a way to forget what we did not love before
or maybe this is nothing but a collection of smiles for compliance

are you diving?
cause from the darkest side of the picture i can't see the bottom
and i know … you need to put a little more of show into your life
but I've always tried to put ... what?
a little more of life into this bloody show

Listen, is it nothing but a challenge we just fear to fail?
Listen, is it nothing but a very loud pretty dodgy defence?
so is it? is it?
maybe this is nothing but a way to forget what we could not love before
or maybe this is nothing but a collection of slaps on the back of our sloth

cause I don't need to bring any praise to the graveyard, to the graveyard
no I won't need to bring any falsehood to that tombstone, to my tombstone
and I won't need to look any younger at the graveyard, any more beautiful than this
I'll be just playing a real show for the ghost and the pure souls
on my tombstone at the graveyard

from the back of our sloth
at the graveyard
on the back of our sloth
at the graveyard
