lyrics

Once we had a giant house with shutters painted pink
And doors that let us in and out
And working stoves and sinks
And you and I were wrapped inside
Like organs under skin
And rich red blood surrounded us
And flowed like melted tin

But we’re not what we once were
We are not that anymore
A vampire dried us out
Pushed her mouth against our door

So then we went out on the road and joined a roaming tribe
And you became a mighty chief and I your lovely bride
And everywhere we walked back then we left footprints in pairs
Through sunshine and through darkened den we went without a care

But we’re not what we once were
We are not that anymore
Our backs have given out
And our legs are tired and sore

And the wolves will find us on the forest floor
And we won’t fight back like we did anymore
They’ll eat us up and spread us all around
And leave us miles apart upon the ground

So we can try to go back in time and start again as babes
At first in cribs and then as kids
Getting taller every day
But as we grow I’m sure I’ll know that things are not the same
For the second time we’ll start out fine and end up in this way

Cause we’re not what we once were
We are not that anymore
A vampire dried us out
Pushed her mouth against our door
No we’re not what we once were
We are not that anymore
You can’t even stand still and stay what you were before
