Tekst piosenki

Come with me now into a piece of velvet

And a plastic painter's daring dance of death

We'll journey very far into the surface

Those not used to diving hold your breath


The lady of my dreams paints scars of velvet

On the mirror are the words she chose to speak

And there the heavy hands that hang suspended

Wrote: The Easter undertaker's laughter breaks


Painter, she cried, it's mourning

She stared like a saint undone

Painter, she cried, it's morning

And we cannot find the sun


I offered her my cap and tiny shovel

Saying, surely this will hide you from the sun

I obtained it from a banker in depression

He was a memory from 1931


She butchers up her meat in careful quarters

Knowing the prize at stake is very high

And she builds a worn cliché into climax

Knowing she will barely get by


Lady, return my dream

It wasn't free, it's not for sale

Lady, return my dream

And let me go on with the telling of my tale


Her gentle voice cried quietly to thank me

It's nothing, the hollow answer said

I let her ride the railroad line to Nowhere

And left the lost survivor on her bed


Lady, return my dream

It wasn't free, it held my life

The portrait ends in a scream

Two hearts held together with a knife
