Say A Prayer

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon
say a prayer

So, what are you weaving there marionette
keepin’ your balance by a single thread
keepin’ your heart strings tight and pure
all you can muster and nothing more
and nothing more
and still you’re sore
and still you’re sore
when do you soar

sometimes justice is the line you walk or sign,
but justice is complex and a matter of time
sometimes it’s hanging in the balance
or dancing in the shadow like a silhouette
so what you weaving there marionette
so what you weaving there marionette

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon
say a prayer, say a prayer
say a prayer, say a prayer

Some people get a sadness so long
they just go on thinking it’s a natural thing
some people throw their hands in the sky
and they wonder why god don’t reply
well it’s a strange, strange time
all our friends dropping like flies
everything that’s come to pass
all the time we thought would last.
well I’ll just button my coat and cover my neck
I got barely enough time to catch my breath
all these pictures I can’t forget
it can fill your cup with regret
it can fill your cup with regret
it can fill your cup with regret

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon

So, what are you weaving there marionette
keepin’ your balance by a single thread
keepin’ your heart strings tight and pure
all you can muster and nothing more

Some people throw their hands in the sky
and they wonder why god don’t reply
well it’s a strange, strange time
all our friends dropping like flies
what are you weaving at marionette
everything that’s come to pass
all the time we thought would last.
what are you weaving at marionette…
