Heaven is a Drag

from by PREE

lyrics

Oh, what was it that they sung?
Rained down like heaven from the lungs
Were I to keep it for my own
I would not be worth my weight in bones

Oh, they will cast a net and pray
All patchwork gold and old decay
Were it, were it to drift my way
I wouldn't know
Wouldn't know just what to say

Hearken to the call, oh dear Eliza
This is what they brought us up to be
Don't listen to the ghosts that walk your hallways
Heaven is a dog and it clings to thee

I was made of stone back when you were made of clay
Oh we had our words, but we threw them all away
Now there's time for you to leave, if you've got time enough to stay
Throw your shadow on the door before it takes another shape
before it crawls inside to stay

Hearken to the call, oh dear Eliza
This is what they brought us up to be
Don't listen to the ghosts that walk your hallways
Heaven is a drag and it drags on thee
