Lyrics
I need a roof to support a fiddler
The songs I'd hear if he were here
The sun turned red and burned the house down
Burn it down sun until it disappears

I need a drink to sink my teeth in
The stories I'd tell if I could yell
At the moon who came down to sweep up the ashes
Sweep them up moon put them on your mantle

You say you need someone to hold on to your dreams
Well I'm afraid I'll have to refer you to my chambermaid
She changes pillowcases in the hotel of disgrace
It's enough to make a sinner sad the way these dreams all go unhad

I need a song to serenade the darkness
And a silver throat to bring her to her knees
I've partaken of all of the pomegranate
And I'm ready to watch the whole earth freeze

I need a lover to feed me poison
The pain I caused would be redeemed
And the devil could hover over my casket
And curls his mustache for eternity

You say you need someone to hold on to your dreams
Well I'm afraid I'll have to refer you to my chambermaid
She changes pillowcases in the hotel of disgrace
It's enough to make a sinner sad the way these dreams all go unhad
