She grew up fast as a cabaret show
Take her to the frozen earth, God
With a head full of coppers like a beggars bowl
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky

She lived in the spaces where the lightning fries
Take her to the frozen earth, God
Yeah, she lived in the spaces with the dark in her eyes
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky

They dragged her out to the lakeside stones
Take her to the frozen earth, God
And they tore her skin until the light was gone
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky

She went out to the lake when the air was red
Take her to the frozen earth, God
And she broke like kindling on the watery bed
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky

She grew up fast as a cabaret show
Take her to the frozen earth, God
With a head full of coppers like a beggars bowl
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky
Take her from the water to sky, God
Take her from the water to sky
