lyrics

mary, mary was a child once, mary
mary, mary had fair eyes once
and they were too big for her
but they, but they, but they closed once
but they, but they closed, once

mary, mary was, mary was, mary was a child

for all i know, she could still see the red flames burning through the screen
for all i know she could still feel the coal between her fingertips, crumbling

mary, mary was, mary was, mary was a child

and she shall never see again
for an eyelid is enough of an open gate
and a hand enough to feel the pain
she shall never see again
for the naked truth is always easier to bear
with rain smothering the flames

i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you
i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you

one two three four, & when you set the house on fire, you
leave our chests to
heave, our hearts to
bleed, our homes to
burn ; the way you let them burn
and get away with it

i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you
i’ll keep on smothering the flames after you

one two three four, & when you leave me in the corner, you
use our tired
faces, our broken
voices, our dust to
ashes

ah, ah
