lyrics

what should you do when you've moved?
memorize each window's view?
or burn your things and look the other way?
the ushers ask the lead "who are you?
please invite us to your party"
steadies herself, nothing much to say

the guests are staring back at her
a silent dance, none say a word
staggered glimpse of heaven sends her down
the strange stay dead and evening falls
there's nothing greater than control, oh no
secret, selfish thoughts fill her head

absolution absolution
absolution absolution

and you could shake her
but couldn't wake her
she lies purified
her eyes closed
knows there's
nowhere quite like this

they're all laying in the grass
discussing fated system crash
how simulated life will end tonight
she looks around with blown glass eyes
the guests are staring at the sky
she'll face her shadow, watching what's behind

stars quit their shining
the sun now aligning
by crescent trees
colors unseen
"oh just wait and you'll see"
prisms projected
their vision protected
by lenses dark
skeptic remarks
"oh just wait and you'll see"

and you could shake her
but couldn't wake her
she lies purified
her eyes closed
secret, selfish thoughts fill her head
