Lyrics

Frail hinges pivot on
A cases door, commemorative
Souvenirs from places
Containers change, each occasion

Cellophane encased
Displaying paper certificate
The credit years of service
A tool of central enterprises

The early hope for permanence
The words the rings, consistency
And social security
The miracles, high tragedy

A thought mistaken for a memory
Dress lengths, assassinations
Fractured family ties
And christenings

Local posts they list your friends
In order, disappearance
Lawn scattered tins, feed birds
The portion baked for absent guests

And the mass edition icon
God sent comfort, your salvation
But who grants absolution
For sins that never were committed?

Tension makes a tangle of
Each thought becomes inconvenience
Sound doesn't ever penetrate
As servile edges break and faint

A thought mistaken for a memory
Clear the dust from smiles in boxes
Cross a patterned wall
Recall the voices

A thought mistaken for a memory
Dress lengths, assassinations
Fractured family ties
And christenings and christenings
All fractured family ties
And christenings

And christenings
