(BONUS​)​_The Hollow Bells

from By the Grace of Dynamite by Hemlock Smith



The Hollow Bells

Oh, we dance
To the sound of our trembling hearts break
It’s the biggest mistake
Yet, we dance…

Yes, we dance
To the hum of our solitudes cling
Even cornered, we sing
And we dance
It’s Romance…

It’s the sound of despair
As we cry in the streets
It’s our cold blooded murders
It’s our biggest defeats
In the silence to come
When we can’t carry on
We long for the days, when
We danced and we sung, oh…

Is a word that I don’t understand
If we’re born then we die
And it’s out of our hands
Yet we dance and we sing
Let the hollow bells ring
And the dead all join in
As we dance
As we dance

We give in to a fleeting sensation of joy
And the boys all like girls and the girls all like boys, oh…

Is the rule that allows him to strike
The sure-footed demon
Or God, if you like

And we dance
To his beat
Let the hollow bells ring
And the dead all join in
As we dance

And we dance…
