lyrics

Until The Snow

Dogtooth coat, digging that hole,
To climb down, to climb down, to climb down until
Singing only one song, a hymn of separation
A ragged refrain been winding from day she left him

Hmm, hmmm

They keep waving their bitter flags with no surrender now
He’s seeing signs and symbols here of older winters walking
Knuckles white and reeling, far too sharp, too loud this crowd
With nothing left just fragment shards of postcards lost and found

Hmm, hmmm

So we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow, until the snow
And we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow

Where now lies the man?
Where now lies the ghost?
Where now lies the lover?
Where now lies his thirst?
Where now lies the fire?
Where now lies the fool?
Where now lies the liar?
Where now lies his truce?
Where now lies the coward?
Where now lies her head?
Where now lies the future?
Where now lies a friend?
Where now lies the man?
Where now lies the ghost?
Where now lies the lover?
Where now lies his thirst?

But we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow, until the snow
And we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow, until the snow
And we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow, until the snow
And we’ll play and we’ll play
And we’ll play these chords
Until the snow
