lyrics

Comb the Ashes


In the cold light, unforgiving –
In the harsh beam of the neon
There they huddle
Just to say goodbye.
Inarticulate, like a mute bell – in the evening
Like a dead cell
Final stroke and after that –
The silence will ever lie.
Say goodbye.

(repeat)

*

Your nails turned black - Wait for the furnace
The final fire – There! - Comb the Ashes…
Your nails turned black - Wait for the furnace
The final fire – There! - Comb the Ashes…

You can comb me…
- comb me…

Your nails turned black - Wait for the furnace
The final fire – There! - Comb the Ashes…
Your nails turned black - Wait for the furnace
The final fire – There! - Come the Ashes…

*

You can comb the ashes, when I’m gone…
You can comb the ashes, when I’m gone…
You can comb the ashes, when I’m gone…
You can comb the ashes, when I’m gone…
