Great Lake Swimmers – Moving Pictures Silent Films lyrics
Oh wake me please when this is over
Oh when the ice is melted away
And the hunger returns
I will be the same but older
And may be twice the bear that I thought I was

Where have you been?
And what have you done?

I've been under the ground
Eating prayers from this old book I found
Under the ground
Saving it up
And spending it all
On moving pictures
Silent films
Moving pictures
Silent films

Oh is this the dream I've been saving?
Oh where the heart beats slower and slower
To almost nothing
Almost nothing
Almost nothing

I took it for love or
At least something beautiful
Out there in the spotlight
I turned around suddenly
Turned around squinting

And saw that it was headlights
And then the truth
The truth was unbearable
Oh and iminent
Bearing down on these two shadowed animals

Caught painting a dotted line
Caught painting a dotted line

Where have you been?
And what have you done?

I've been under the ground
Eating prayers from this old book I found
Under the ground
Saving it up
And spending it all
On moving pictures
Silent films
Moving pictures
Silent films
