lyrics

Rachel, why did you bring me here
To stare at the endless blue
Of the ocean or the sky
Or the iris of my eye
To and see your point of view
When everything I’ve learned
Has only brought me further from the truth

Rachel why did you teach me fear?
Was it so I knew to run
So I can make it another year?
Rachel why do I hate death?
When it’s all that I will have
When I’ve given my last breath

Rachel, I’ll put your head up on the wall
When the gun is in your hand
You’ll only be taking the fall
I’ll cut out your brain
Clean up the stain of knowledge

Rachel, you had to die for me
And I’ll swallow up the sea
Or turn the air to smog

‘Cause I am the mourning son
Burning bright beside your grave

Rachel why didn’t you point that gun at me
I am not for this world
I am only for the flood
And I want to write my name in blood
And have it splattered across a million TV screens

Rachel, I’ll put your head up on the wall
When the gun is in your hand
You’ll only be taking the fall
I’ll cut out your brain
Clean up the stain of knowledge
Remove every trace of knowledge

Rachel, I hope you know
That these are only words
And if I’ve said
Anything to upset you
I hope you know I’m sorry
These fevers pass…

I hope one day to be as beautiful as you are…
