lyrics

I was born in a mortuary

Full of worry

Ice water in my veins

Gave my heart in the school library

Never knew her name


Lost my tongue in the sanctuary

“Heaven spare me!”

Hands raised above my head

Sent my brain to the seminary

Never seen again...


Swing low

Grey bones

I don't know

If I'll ever be whole again


Left my spine in the wedding chapel

Full of people

Feet turning into lead

Lost a leg at the iron foundry

Where they found me dead


Drained my blood at the mortuary

No more worry

Ice water in my veins

Took my bones to the cemetery

Where they still remain


So swing low

Grey bones

I don't know

If I'll ever be whole again
