about

I got a ton of requests from people for the vocals to be turned up. It really strongly prefer them mixed a bit back as in the original, so this alternate mix is my way of compromising.

lyrics

Mother, father, blood and water, how are you today?
Peeking through the looking glass its dark enough to stay
Cigarettes and razor blades and needles full of white
Focus screens and apertures and falling through the light

Some say it's all over now but I think it's just begun
Falling backwards out of step with nowhere left to run
So leap before you look because it's quite a long way down
But don't forget to close your eyes before you hit the ground

Acapella, Cinderella, Rhapsody in blue
Dust and smoke that wrap the city in the afternoon
Crooked smiles, apathetic, watching me go by
Calling off the royal wedding just to make her cry

Some say its all over now, but I think it's just begun
Falling backwards out of step with one hand on the gun
So leap before you look because it's quite a long way down
And don't forget to close your eyes before you hit the ground

There's fires burning all around
Through the smoke it's hard to see
But I'm trying so hard to climb out
I'm trying to believe
That all new beginnings come from ends
So cross your fingers and pray for rain
Cause summer's almost over friend
Soon snow will fall again

Some say it's all over now, but I think it's just begun
Pulling back the curtains to admit the morning sun
When you ask me how I feel, I don't know what to say
Cause I've been in the dark so long I'm blinded by the day
