Blake Babies – Dead And Gone lyrics

It was getting cold and I felt like I was drifting away.
So I pulled the wool over my eyes, it was heavy and warm
And when you acted like this was how it was supposed to be,
I really let it cover me.

But soon as you're dead and gone I'll see,
What wasn't always clear to me.
I will be free to bury you.

I woke up early and I looked into the sunny expanse of the sky,
Then I took one look at you and I knew that it was time for something to die.
I'm giving back the sugar that you offered up.
It covers up the ache and the cavity, but it's not enough.

Soon as you're dead and gone i'll see,
What wasn't always clear to me.
I will be free to bury you forever.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Ohhhhhh! Ohhhhh!

Now that you're dead and gone I'll take back
All that I always thought I knew.
They'd be the best things I can give away.
