lyrics

Oh, my laws.
Life is such a wretched, reckless albatross
Round your neck,
swinging like an anvil chandelier

And you’re spinning straw
from mines and mines of gold
Who knew you could make
poverty out of that prosperity?

Wait until your heart is broken,
Wait until your baby’s choking
Then you’ll know you know the world unkind.

Black on black,
funeral procession down the block and back
To mourn the loss
of every shooting star you never saw.

Maybe one day you will lay them in their plot,
But the procession never stops.

Wait until your heart is broken,
Wait until your baby’s choking
Then you’ll know you know the world unkind.

So cuff that wrist to St. Sebastian
[and shudder just a little bit]
To watch the sun eclipsed by arrows falling.
The Saint is calling,
But you won’t step away

Wait until your heart is broken,
Wait until your baby’s choking
Then you’ll know you know the world unkind.

Wait until your heartbeat breaks,
Wait until your whole soul aches,
‘Til you suffer and nobody minds
Then you’ll know you know the world unkind.
