Long Cruel Day

from by Roger Heathers

lyrics

Crawling ivy, she climbed me
This body of stone
Will crumble and die slowly
So green and so silent
Gripped 'round the throat
I'm hoping to choke quickly

And we were there
When nature adorned you
And I would adore you
Was a long cruel day

The leaves in your dress
Gentle duress
All turns brown
All falls down
Here at the end of a long cruel day

In the hush of the morning
The blackbirds will sigh
For all that is I, I
In the earth lies a polaroid picture
The Earth was a child, laughing

And we were there
When nature adorned you
And I would adore you
Was a long cruel day

The leaves in your dress
Gentle duress
All turns brown
All falls down
Here at the end of a long cruel day

Long cruel day
The sun lights this island in peculiar ways
Long cruel day
Angels and vultures look almost the same
In the eyes of the prey

And we were there
When nature adorned you
And I would adore you
Was a long cruel day

The leaves in your dress
Gentle duress
All turns brown
All falls down
Here at the end of a long cruel day

Of a long cruel day
