In the seconds between the safety unlocks and the shot,
The story is clear of distortions and tears and you'll know why

we're on mulholland drive
Can you survive a look inside?

like a bomb in reverse, fragments of truth return:
The money's been paid out, the key's on the table
You've killed someone you used to love

yes I agree now, her story's a hoax
Recorded impulses laid, dubbed and cross faded,
It's just light replayed

still I ended on mulholland drive
Can you survive a look inside?

yes I can see now, they had nothing to do with a role refused
And sometimes a cowboy's just a man in a cowboy suit
