From the album Talking Loud

Lyrics

WHISPERS
Dead tree is talking loud. Bones scattered in the ground.
Won’t you dig me a hole and cover up my sounds.
Company’s coming to town with cancer driven memories.
Bold and bright in the light clouding everything they see.
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah

In a coffin of gold
lay ribbons around my eyes.
Toast to me all your praise and swallow up your lies.
Dead Elvis lullabies. Crushed velvet black and torn.
Throw diamonds in the pond. Shower me in the storm.
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah

Battle grounds of lover’s past bring flowers to my grave.
Eyes seeing all the rage. Forbidden words and glory days
Stay asleep inside a dream. Blank pages, hollow tree.
Seven minutes in an hour for all the dead to see.
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah ah,
Ah ah ah ah
