lyrics

Make your way to the basement

Say hi to the queen

She’s grateful for your sacrifice

But it won’t be how it seems



Her love is stashed away in tins

Her teeth are chipped but clean

Since the revolution came

That’s just the way it’s been



Every day she begs the truth

And every day I lie

On maps I chart where thousands march
Though we number 25


See the trees and see their branches

Burning bright with palace stanchions

I will not tell lies to you, I would love her here today
Sometimes when her eyelids fall I don’t know what to say



The queen is here crowned in complaisance, an empty throne astride

Please entertain her vanity and its many blushing brides

I close my eyes and it’s here in me

And ornate frieze and glaze break down into my heart

Break down into my heart

And all the freezing days break down into my heart beneath the ground

I conceal you here but you are far from free or safe and sound

All the days break down into my heart

All the days break down into my heart



You're hiding nothing here to warm my heart

For I am not the same man now

Who once mistook your mess for a work of art

That only he could read somehow



I feel less lonely when we’re apart

But I am not the same man now

Who once mistook your mess for a work of art

That only he could read somehow



Warm and warm and warm my heart

For I am not the same man now



Make your way to the basement

Say hi to the queen

If she feigns an interest

Don’t dwell on where she’s been



See the trees with blackened branches

Defy the night with palace stanchions



I cannot tell lies to you

I would love her here today



The queen stands brooding in the basement

A hunger in her eyes
The weight of every move she makes

Will help your world capsize



I close my eyes and she’s here in me

And ornate frieze and glaze break down

Into my heart

All the missing days break down

Into my heart beneath the ground

I am concealed in here with you

But dare not move or make a sound



All the days break down into my heart


You're hiding nothing here to warm my heart

For I am not the same man now

Who once mistook your mess for a work of art

That only he could read somehow



I feel less lonely when we’re apart

But I am not the same man now

Who once mistook your mess for a work of art

That only he could read somehow



Warm and warm and warm my heart

For I am not the same man now
