Flags

May your gods bless you
When the cold gets into your bones
You find the need to silently let her know
It's not as much fun anymore
There's this division of labor
She does the dishes
You pick up the laundry
You resent each other through your chosen chores
Both look with wider eyes at the movie stars

Stars in your eyes I remember
You were once a diver for pearls
Was it so much work
Did you hold your breath so long
You know a love that's skin deep
Will soon start to peel...

It's fear that makes sharp dressed men
March across the souls of women
And they'll run like dogs in the streets without allegiance
They'll pin their flags to a mast out of terror
To a mast out of terror

May your gods bless you
May your gods bless you

You groan in the morning
You feel like your putting your best foot forward on a bed of nails
You think that you're clever, scheming your exit
But if she's got any sense boy she's doing the same

Stars in your eyes I remember
You were once a diver for pearls
Was it so much work
Did you hold your breath so long
You know a love that's skin deep
Will soon start to peel...

It's fear that makes sharp dressed men
March across the souls of women
And they'll run like dogs in the streets without allegiance
They'll pin their flags to a mast out of terror
To a mast out of terror

May your gods bless you
May your gods bless you
May your gods bless you
