    Pink Bullets Lyrics

    I was just bony hands as cold as a winter pole
    you held a warm stone out new flowing blood to hold
    oh what a contrast you were
    to the brutes in the halls
    my timid young fingers held a decent animal.

    Over the ramparts you tossed
    the scent of your skin and some foreign flowers
    tied to a brick
    sweet as a song
    the years have been short but the days were long.

    Cool of a temperate breeze from dark skies to wet grass
    we fell in a field it seems now a thousand summers passed
    when our kite lines first crossed
    we tied them into knots
    and to finally fly apart
    we had to cut them off.

    Since then it's been a book you read in reverse
    so you understand less as the pages turn
    or a movie so crass
    and awkardly cast
    that even I could be the star.

    I don't look back as much as a rule
    and all this way before murder was cool
    but your memory is here and I'd like it to stay
    warm light on a winter day.

    Over the ramparts you tossed
    the scent of your skin and some foreign flowers
    tied to a brick
    sweet as a song
    the years have been short but the days go slowly by
    two loose kites falling from the sky
    drawn to the ground and an end to flight.
