Way Out

lyrics

It's raining, it's raining and the sun is out
There is fever, there is fever in the town
There are fires in the castle and all around
There is cancer, there is cancer in my house

Bone doctor says I'm in trouble
That I should save for medicine
Witch doctor pulled me from the rubble
He saved my life then made a deathmask from my skin

You're crying, you're crying and your hair is down
There is fighting, there is fighting in the street
There are soldiers in the schoolhouse and underground
There's a pile of flesh and flowers at your feet

Town cryer says we're in trouble
That we should run toward the sun
Crooks and liars, picks and shovels
We'll leave them all behind before this day is done

I'm floating, I'm floating over angry crowds
There is magic, there is magic in the sky
Will you find me in my tiny corner of the clouds?
I'll be waiting with my hands over my eyes

Ringbearer, bring another eulogy
Make it short and sweet and pretty, get it right this time
Wayfarer, burn another effigy
Make a show of it
They won't be getting over this, not tonight
Get on with it
Keep the bonfires lit, all right
All right.
