And when my noose is tied I could blow it
15 centuries of dissolution and grief

That's when the trail escapes to nowhere
Such conviction
Of the young and the faithful and the good
Yeah I found a whistle as thin as a sheet
Between asleep and a sleep
Repeatedly raising the flag

And on dark nights when the moon is right
The head attached with a scarf
When it's gone, has it gone all the way?
This time
That works every time
That works
Yeah, found a whistle
Yeah, I found a whistle
Closes my mind every time
I've got it,
This time
