The dusk it has fallen, the comet has crashed
The stolen statues have lost their heads
The great wall of china is melting in the rain
Stacks of words are burning like Pompei

The fog in our bedroom was thicker than before
I called your name and it felt like war
And we ran with our shoes off to the pavement's end
To the place of our birth at the end of the earth

Helpless kiss, I'm rudderless
How do you intend to unbreak this?
We're a paper fleet in an arctic freeze
On the skin of an endless open sea

In boxes in the basement, we buried our hurt
We were keeping score, we were saving our words
We touched like flowers, frozen in wreaths
We fell like stones, we were running in our sleep

Helpless kiss, I'm rudderless
How do you intend to unbreak this?
We're a paper fleet in an arctic freeze
On the skin of an endless open sea

Happy endings are dependant on where the film is cut
Noah's Ark and the Titanic are different scenes of the same plot
I will not tear apart your photo, I will not desecrate your grave
Because I know they are not responsible for the time when they were made

Helpless kiss, I'm rudderless
How do you intend to unbreak this?
You're a paper fleet in an arctic freeze
On the skin of an endless open sea
