Say this for me, for I have been seized
A hand in the dark has a hold onto me
It's pulling me in, into that horrible sea
“All your clouds spring from the mouth
Of night, O of the night.”

Through the wind and the rain, I will carry you off in the aeroplane
Through the fire and flame, I will carry you off in the end
O will you wait for me after I disappear?
Or will you throw, will you throw all my ashes off of this pier,
O my dear?

I’ll make it out
From the flames that burn inside of this house
To the place that we are from
This city is an old black lung.
