lyrics

and the clock keeps ticking away
always straight on the beat and no prisoners made
and there's nothing you could do or make or try to say to make this city feel you're sorry
and the one thing you're thinking is "how will i tell her i just came here to bury her body"

and the locks all snap in today
all the faces erased, all the bonds left to break
and you just can't recollect, there's nothing there to indicate
that once these streets were full of promise
and the last thing you're thinking is "when i return just how much will be there left to punish"

all good children

there'll be nothing on the record then just when i turn the page
only nothingness left over of the silver city blaze
just a design remote and desperate
like the pictures that i take before the storm delights in elegantly wiping out this place
there’s a brutal call of duty
there’s a faint terrible beauty
in the hearts
left to break

so i promise you tonight this bloody town will sift and sink
all of the pages be erased and all the billboards will turn blank
and it's none of your concern, it is impossible to think
that once you held her like a lover
and it's just empty spaces no blood on the pavements no war and no bodies to cover
and the crown will be taken the palace forsaken the skies above will silently hover

and it's just empty spaces no blood on the pavements
they’re gone
