Lyrics

Did I mention we were dreaming?
When the devil came to town.
I was awoken by the screaming
But nobody heard a sound
And the lies we told at breakfast,
Will match the lies we had for lunch
And the lies we served for dinner, (for dinner)
Yeah for dinner, (for dinner)
They're the tallest of the bunch.

Did you notice he was cold? (Did you notice he was cold)
When he finally lost control, let go
And the epilogue I dreaded,
Seemed likely to console.
And I'm still not understanding (And I'm still not understanding)
The things he did before he left.
And the one thing that will haunt me, (will haunt me)
He will haunt me, (he will haunt me)
Right before his final breath
He said.

And they broke him down,
Yeah they broke him down.
He said I'll never be your saint you see cause I won't be hanging around.
So they broke him down,
Yeah they broke him down.
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew it wouldn't be long
Till they broke me down.

Did I mention we were flailing? (Did I mention we were flailing?)
When the angels came around? (When angels came around)
They just sat there, they were waiting, (they were waiting)
For the first of us to drown (for. the. first. of. us. to. drown.)
And I started going under (And I started going under)
But I didn't hold my breath (But I didn't hold my breath)
Cause the last thing I that I needed, (I needed)
Oh I needed, (I needed)
Was to owe a holy debt,
Oh no.

And no one holds a grudge, dear,
Like I do.
I see it through.
And you may not remember,
It was nothing much at the time
But I kept it bottled inside.
Oooh and we all know how that goes,
Yeah I've given up on letting go.
So here we are
With nothing left dear
And now you've left here
And I was last to know.

And they broke him down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I can't be your saint you see cause I won't be hanging around.
And they broke him down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew it wouldn't be long.

Holy smoke.
Some say we've given up the ghost
But I think he's in the background (somewhere in the background)
Hiding in his favorite photographs.
And he's living as a beggar (And he's living as a beggar)
Or a millionaire (or a millionaire)
But the one thing that I'm sure of (I'm sure of)
I am sure of (I'm sure of)
Is he found some comfort there.

And they broke him down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I can't be your saint you see cause I won't be hanging around.
And they broke him down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long
Till they broke me down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I can't be your saint you see
Cause I won't be hanging around.
And they broke him down (And they broke him down)
Yeah they broke him down (Yeah they broke him down)
So I stood there and I held my breath because I knew that it wouldn't be long
Till they broke me down.
