lyrics

Come in from the cold where fire wheels roll.
The weeds at your feet are all that you eat.
There's someone inside all that money you find.
The floors and the walls of your ancient dark halls,
so, please, please don't change.
please, please

The water will rise up over your eyes.
You haven't looked yet at the people you met.
They'll drown in the sea of what you can see.
The corners of truth are the sorrows of mirth,
but, please, please don't change
please, please
please, please

She stands on her feet in the widening street,
as wide as it's long, all direction has gone.
So forward and back have been lost in the black.
There's nowhere to go when you're already home,
so, please, please don't change
please, please

You're the only one who knows
what is real from what you're told.
You're the only one who knows
what is real from what you know.


please, please don't change
please, please

There's a place in the sea so dark you can't see,
like another place in the vastness of space,
that place in the ground that we'll all go down.
So dark you can't see,
so real you can't be,
so cold you can't feel,
so dead you're not real,
so off you're the same,
but, please, please don't change
please, please
