Flicker And Fail Lyrics

11 Flicker And Fail

 

He took a bus to meet me

In a bar in a Tuscan hill

Oh a sight I'd never seen

I believe in God still

But you wouldn't be able to stop me

If I feel like running away

Wouldn't be able to stop me

If I didn't want to stay

 

 

And the rain fell on the houses

And on the late swaying trees

It fell its fiercest on the skulls

Of the willingly deceived

They put money in their hearts

 

And God where their mouth is

They put money in their hearts and God

 

Said he'd been sleeping lonely

Spending nights under the stars

Little darling we're all lonely

We don't all show our scars

It's my heart and my burden

And I would never bring you down like that

My heart my burden

I would never bring you down with me

 

And the rain fell on the towers

And on the late swaying trees

And it hammered and it raged on us unwillingly

And the believers were forewarned

And they ran into the storm

And watched the earth's light flicker and fail

Watched the earth's light flicker and fail

Flicker and flicker and fail

 

They put money in their hearts

And God where their mouth is

They put money in their hearts

And God where their mouth is

They put money in their hearts

And God where their mouth is

 

They put money in their hearts and God
