Lyrics

When the soul of the city
Was laid to rest
And the nights forgotten
And left for dead

It happened at a house
Built of living light
Where everything evil
Disappears and dies

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

I settled in slowly
To this house which is a home
To blood and breath
Fair flesh and bone

Rush of our bodies
In the heat of the night
All day, the day after
Bled in the skies

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

It's a lifeless life
With no fixed address to give
But you're not mine to die for anymore
So I must live

Born of a bottle
From Edmonton
And now you know
And here I am

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will!)
Tell them all they're loving my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down!)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love me and they will (and they will!)
I'll tell them all they're loving your shadow
And if they try to slow me down (slow you down!)
I'll tell them all to go to hell

When they love me and they will (and they will!)
I'll tell them all they're loving your shadow
And if they try to slow me down (slow you down!)
I'll tell them all to go to hell
