lyrics

Isn't it strange, how all the space we've taken
Could collapse into such a tiny spot
A sliver of time, unbearably consequential
Concentrating all that we are not
To say
To carry far away
Edges from the shape they hold
Secrets from the life that can be told
Piece from piece the image shatters

You can't retrace me, baby, no
Just keep it down, it down, it low
In every street's a new shadow
To recollect the shape you know

So hard, I could be made of diamonds
Compromised by a single fatal flaw
A thousand shards, a thousand tiny fragments
Scattered through the world and one below
Your skin
So you begin
Sifting through the dust and ashes
Haunted by a grief that dare not speak
Gather up the shatter-pieces

You can't retrace me, baby, no
Just let it lie, in lies laid low
In every street's a new shadow
To tell a tale I know
I know, I know, I know
You can't retrace me, baby, no
The night it fall, it come, it go
In every street's a new shadow
To recollect the shape you know
