OUT OF YOUR DEN

You’re a phantom, a wide-eyed ghost

Leaving nothing but tracks in the snow

They’ll hunt you down, spears and flame

Behind their backs as they call your name

 

//Come out, darling,

Out of your den

Say good evening

To these gentlemen

Smile for them

Smile so bright

Never expose the red

When you show those whites//

 

The stars are distant but they love them so

You’re so close but they don’t even know

The sun is distant but they mark its time

You’re right here but they don’t see you shine

 

//Come out, darling

Out of your den

Say good evening

To these gentlemen

Smile for them

Smile so bright

Never expose the red

When you show those whites//

 

So pace and turn, a bright parade

Their well-groomed savant their grand charade

Bones and blood well hid beneath

A smiling, subtle, silk-banded sheath

 

//Come out, darling

Out of your den

Say good evening

To these gentlemen

Smile for them

Smile so bright

Never expose the red

When you show those whites//

 

No, lift your voice

Up to the sky

Oh, dig your claws

Into the grime

Outrun the voices

Outrun the vices

Outrun the voices

Who say to serve time
