Axe to tree, soul out of body.
Take 'em down before they gettin' old.
Sad to see, oh that it's sorry
but the ground is cold
so blisters are born from a
home in town, maybe a block from the main
well it's better than medicine from the ground,
the innocent building no shame.
As he swing, singing along with the sound
bringing a nevermore
as he begins with the door (oh and he ends with the door)
Da da da da da da da da da da..
well it's better than medicine..
out of the ground...

Wood to walls and then on the floor
built a table so tall but the chairs are shorter
tired fall, that oaken bed.
Took 'em years to carve that headboard there
and wood above, soon to be lower than snow, thought it a never know,
take it all as them angels are falling from
the wood above soon to be dry from the rain,
bringing a never been,
bringing it all the same.
No one waits... x3
for the never say.
No one goes... x3
for the never know
But it's always loud... x3
down at the never now.

Drag that tree, body's hungry.
Stack 'em upside down now to live below.
Said to see all a bit of the worry
cause the ground it is cold
so blisters were born from a
home in town, maybe a block and a day
well it's better to let it in from the ground
bringing it all the same.
Then he found a door that would fit in the frame
let 'em just set it in
let it just live and then
