Lyrics

Verbatim from Liner Notes
Don't let it take you down the rabbit hole
Don't let it take you in your black sleep days/
Heels in the mud
Eyes on the fire
Forgiveness no revenge mary
God and the devil bet
In the wine/ a boat without a sail
Magdalene washes up on a marseilles beach/
Drunk in the sun
The same smoky eyes
As a Knoxville girl on fire
God and the devil agree
[you're smoke in the light/you're dust on the dancefloor/there ain't no going home]
Magdalene takes you by the throat and smiles
Jesus confuses me/
Everything's true
Nothing is provable
Forgiveness no revenge mary
God and the devil agree
[you're smoke in the light/you're dust on the dance floor/there ain't no going home]
