Mercury Rev – Opus 40

Well she tossed all nite like a ragin’ sea
woke up an’ climbed from th’ suicide machine
with her spanish candles an’ her persian poems
stuck on th’ rocks inside opus 40 stoned
an’ scratchin’ her wrists in th’ pourin rain
she collapses down upon th’ ocean floor again

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

Catskill mansions buried screams
i’m alive she cried but i don’t know what it means
somewhere out there across th’ moonlit sands
there’s a line drawn like th’ lines on her own hand
an’ slammin’ her eyes lockin’ the door
she collapses down upon th’ ocean floor again

Tears in waves mindson fire
Nights alone by your side
