lyrics

DEATH’S WOODEN LAUGHTER

When you lie awake at night
While your parents fight
You hear
Death’s wooden laughter

When you hear the boom boom
From the living room
It’s
Death’s wooden laughter

When they’re carried away
You’re left with nothing to say
Death’s wooden laughter

When you are tried by fire
In the orphan choir
Death’s wooden laughter

It’s not a raw guffaw
That you hear, my son
More like a skeleton
That you play upon
Ringing through the hall
From the day you rise
Until you fall

And you row and row
Your little boat of woe
And you hear
Death’s wooden laughter

Grass turns to hay
Your soil now is clay
And you hear
Death’s wooden laughter

When the factory closes
And you wait for diagnosis
Death’s wooden laughter

And all that you own
Is a mute telephone
Death’s wooden laughter

It’s not the wind that you hear
In the trees, my dear
It’s the life that you gave up
For your career
It’s the answer you always sought after
It’s Death’s Wooden Laughter

We are the bars
In the devil’s xylophone
He plays on us
When we’re on our own
From birth to the hereafter
It’s Death’s wooden laughter
Nothing but
Death’s wooden laughter
We all hear
Death’s wooden laughter
