The newcomer arrives
Possession and guilt in his face
Apologises to the Customs man
For the gaping hole in his suitcase
Says I've seen where promises are made
I've seen how people are undone
It's always done
Man to man
One to one

I'm ditching an empty suitcase
I've been in Storytown
I've been swimming in poisons
Been slowing up and down
I've known the eeriest wounds
