A Marvellous Death

by Theatre Royal

/

about

A song of old age, death and triumph. This track will be on our forthcoming album 'Portraits'.

lyrics

A marvellous way for him to go
A young man’s death in an old man’s show
Moving fast when you’re told you’re slow
More than the rust so you told them no

I won’t let the outside keep me in
I don’t want the undertaker stealing my sins

Bones picked clean before they’re gone
Eyes all gleam and gaze what’s left for them
Hold the end in your own hand
Two fingers raised as you make your last stand

I won’t let the outside keep me in
I don’t want the undertaker stealing my sins

Lay in bed defiantly
What they said just isn’t what you feel
Breath in deep and taste the sleep
It’s just an empty seat when companies skin deep

I won’t let the outside keep me in
I don’t want the undertaker stealing my sins

Burn your gown
Ride your bed right down the hill
Howl at the moon
Use all your breath until you’re still
