I go to the places where we used to. I am out here looking for you. What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us? Who wants to live forever? There's no chance for us. It's all decided for us. This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us. Inside today, inside me today. Around broken in two, 'til your eyes share into dust.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night, take these sunken eyes and learn to see. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free. Words support like bone. Dreaming of Mercy Street, wear your inside out, dreaming of Mercy Street, in your daddy's arms again. Ambition in the back of a black car. In a high building there is so much to do.

A nation mourns your tragic downfall. There will be no military parade. In the House of Mystery, there was no one at all, there was no one at all. It seems so long ago, none of us were strong.
