    Lyrics

    Maps on the back of your hands point to the cross
    Scratches on walls in a room draw out your loss
    Your islands are conquered and you are returned to the throne
    Martyrs take penance and fill up the mattress with stones

    Pull straws with holy men
    Stain all the atlas pink
    And let us find a beach
    Where we can cross our hearts

    Stand in the wind as the carousels spin
    Wear out your welcome again
    Stand on the silence of mountains and
    Wear out your welcome again

    Mornings hit hard with an uncontrollable light
    Piercing the senses that click deep in the night
    Crouched in a pillow of straw feet on the floor
    Creeping a path to the mat that holds back the door

    Pull straws with holy men
    Stain all the atlas pink
    And let us find a beach
    Where we can cross our hearts

    Build up great railways that run through the horns of the moon
    Hold up a city with cast iron museum walls
    Explain your machines to the boys, feed them with tools
    Bring out the skill in your skin, polish your hair

    Pull straws with holy men
    Stain all the atlas pink
    And let us find a beach
    Where we can cross our hearts

    Stand in the wind as the carousels spin
    Wear out your welcome again
    Stand on the silence of mountains
    And take a look down to the sea

    Stand in the wind as the carousels spin
    Wear out your welcome again
    Stand on the silence of mountains
    And take a look down to the sea
