  1. Dead

From the recording In the Wake

Lyrics

I hear the phone ring, then your hallowed voice
I watch the clock turn, midnight on its course
Her yellow eyes burn, a hex upon the black
I feel a stone chill, creeping up my back

CHORUS:
If I turn up dead, I didn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, remember I called you
If I turn up dead, I wouldn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, her tears will not be true

I see the blood red of your words inside my head
A thousand miles away, helpless so I pray
That you’ll find your way to you, to the child inside the man
Dig your soul into the earth, into it’s own intrinsic worth

CHORUS:
If I turn up dead, I didn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, remember I called you
If I turn up dead, I wouldn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, her sorrow won’t be true

BRIDGE:
All your threats through steely eyes
You break the man you break his ties
To everything that’s bright and true
To everything that is not you

CHORUS:
If I turn up dead, I didn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, remember I called you
If I turn up dead, I wouldn’t kill myself
If I turn up dead, her sorrow won’t be true

If I turn up dead, she’s dropped the other shoe
Remember I called you….
