lyrics

you put it all behind you
you rebuilt and moved on
with your silver spray paint and your skinny dipping at Sylt
you occupied your mind
...
you got on with your life
the only way you knew how
it’s a guilt your beautiful babies
are only starting to face now

and he must be of remarkable fortitude
who could have been more courageous at Oranienburg
and so we perceive in the people and the streets
only the thing that we want to see, and nothing more

i met your father at the front porch
at first he couldn’t say my name
we didn’t share a language
so he poured us a drink
...
we were both public service
and we both loved our Dietrich in separate ways
so we learned how to ask each other questions
and talk about the these things

he must be of unthinkable cruelty
who couldn’t wait to destroy Nagasaki
so we perceive in the people and the streets
only the thing that we really want to see, and nothing more
not some deep dark truth they hold in themselves
or the love their eyes seem to confess
or some shame averted left there to redress
it’s just a cold and tired impression
nothing more

when our eyes meet, it’s too brief
an old habit learned from pock-marked tenements
we sleep so close that we seek some space
though we’re not that close at all
