lyrics

I walk one direction in the city
Til the prospekt vanishes
The night time is flickering around
More than my candle is
The staring faces stoke my temper
I forget my languages
I lay to rest down in an alley
My dreams just multiply my damages

The marbles are in your head
Under the bed in your head

So you could say the marbles
Are in your dread

My body one disoriented spasm
My mind in isolated proxy
A lawman follows as he watches
To enforce the orthodoxy
Perhaps he knows the guilt inside me
But I did not wrong I am just walking
A microcosmic intermission
I see how it feels when they stalk me

The marbles are miles ahead
In your head they inherit the dead
So the dead are there in your head
Under the bed in your head

They crept down there you pictured how they bled
They crept down there I pictured how they bled out

I didn't lose my marbles
I hid them
I hid them from you
Afraid if you knew
That I wasn't crazy
You'd think I was crazy
For not being crazy
And you'd be right

I swung the axe when I was near her
But Murphy's law applied
So I missed and hit the mirror
And she died when she had to die

I didn’t lose my marbles
I hid them
I hid them from you
Afraid if you knew
I swung the axe when I was near her
But Murphy's law applied
So I missed and hit the mirror
And I’ll die when I have to die

The marbles are in the street
Stomped by the feet of the KG-Beat
Marching loud concrete

The marbles are in the snow
Where else would they go, everything's covered in snow
Global nightmare

The marbles are on the edge
On the bridge on the ledge just a smidge to the edge
With an urge to sing a dirge

The marbles are falling in
To the river drowning in a Russian liver
Give her your sin

Out of the river
Sonia sips
And Sonia shivers
Sonia's lips
