about

Second single from The Witch Trials, recorded across several sleepless nights in Temple Lane's Apollo Studio.

lyrics

All us slaves to sedatives keep our failing idols hid,
While our lovers burn on hilltops far away
And are then buried in porcelain coffins.
And I watched her from the battlements, she sang her harrowing lament
It shook the whole castle.
I wondered how she made such beautiful sadness,
Such sweet sorrow.

When the souls are resurrected,
The hypothesis rejected,
All the kids left unprotected,
When we prove that all this madness,
All this existential sadness wasn't real
Virginia will love me.

My head is a minefield, my soul's a sailor lost at sea
Hell is other people.
You'll find me in the lonely hour, screaming from the castle tower;
"Virginia, come and keep me warm."

Virginia is a bomb, she's a twelve gauge sawed off shotgun,
She's a war and I love her with the fire of a thousand burning suns
But I can't stand the way she cries,
How she kills me with her eyes,
How she tears me down and trips me out and rips me up inside.

She's the truth, she's the dark side
And her fine lines keep me up all night,
But she spooks, she takes off and flies
Like a black cat at a witch trial.

When the souls are resurrected,
The hypothesis rejected,
All the kids left unprotected,
When we prove that all this madness,
All this existential sadness wasn't real
Virginia will love me.

Her eyes are streams of ecstasy, float the fear right out of me
Her pillow could cushion the falling of the sky
But she cries and I'm down again, fortune takes my crown again
But she remains my one true friend,
Virginia, we are near the end.
