Mercury Rev – Opus 40 lyrics

Well she tossed all night like a raging sea
Woke up and climbed from the suicide machine
With her spanish candles and her persian poems
Stuck on the rocks inside opus 40 stoned
And scratching her wrists in the pouring rain
She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

Catskill mansions buried screams I'm alive
She cried but I don't know what it means
Somewhere out there across the moonlit sands
There's a line drawn like the lines on her own hand
And slamming her eyes locking the door
She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side
