Jimmy Brown
Made of stone
Charlie Clown
No way home
Bring on the dancing horses
Headless and all alone

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while I'm breaking
Your brittle heart

Billy stands
All alone
Sinking sand
Skin and bone
Bring on the dancing horses
Wherever they may roam

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while I'm breaking
Your brittle heart

Jimmy Brown
Made of stone
Charlie Clown
No way home
Bring on the headless horses
wherever they may roam.

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while you're breaking
My brittle heart

Bring on the new messiah
Wherever he may roam

    I belive this song refers to the end of the world. The dancing horses are the 4 horses of the apocalypse. "first i'm gonna make it... " refers to god making the world and then destroying it. God destrpys the world because man is too deceitful and destrcutive to his fellow man, but like a father forced to kill his own murderous child, is heartbroken to do so.
