In the summer gale
I was half asleep
They threw their stones
They marched their feet
To the war drunk king
To the howling wolf
It frightened me awake
the hail punched my roof

They'd throw her in jail
For her god damn grin
My eyes have grown red now
They'll never let me in
So I'll dig my grave
And I'll buy a suit
I've never been the kind to
Bite Edens fruit

On the oceans floor
You would find the ship
Where we spent all of our money
For the round trip
We'd toast to the doctors
For keeping us sane
As the mob is imploding
We'd ditch our ball and chain

And they'll play it loud!
The entire phantom band!
One by one they'll dig heads from the sand
So when the strike the first note
Would you waltz with me?
Is this not a free fall?
Am I not decent company?
