lyrics

In the dark sky constellations rise
In the dark sky recon satellites orbit by

You stand on the side of the road
like the world's police
I see your sword, but where is your shield, where re your friends?
The dog detects the scent of a cat he smelled a thousand times before
All house are dark and everyone is off to bed
The dog heads back home and you follow
Domesticated and loyal

We came, we saw, he died, the sword
We came, we saw, he died, the sword
We came, we saw, he died, the sword

As soon as I entered the woods
sword bites echo back at me
Far off someone is chopping wood, but not for building a fire but to make space for an airstrip
Renditions and secret missions

The sun is gone, but we don't light the fireplace until it gets really cold
The sun is gone, but we don't light the fireplace until it gets really cold

When I reached the clearing I found three swords stuck in the ground
I looked up and stared at the stars
For a long time I wondered if orbiting satellites float or fly
