hold her down, hold him down
with that mocking face you make
pin them now, pin them now
to a memory of shame
that only you could make
spelling them, spell their name

holding down, holding down
with that killing face you make
just a stone would be better
so much easier to take
hey don't you know, don't you know
another blue another soul, before them and awake
it was who she was
give it away so freely
they all seem to hate
ooh, jealous fire from within

hold innocence down, holding down
with symbols that they make
just a stone would be better
so much easier to take
just a stone would be better
so much easier to take
but soon he won't hold her down no more

holding down, holding down
with judgement and some pain
a little more, a little more
there's the blood and then her name
sacred ain't, no it ain't
hidden like it used to be
lay her down, lay her down
now let her go to sleep
a relic she's become, turn it over with fingertips
over bones they come and come again

a little late in the day
but the holding down, he went away
another chance to feed the shame
has died went he went away
no holding down, no holding down
not today or any other the day
a relic she's no more,
thief of truth and thief of names
they have gone but she will stay,
he aint comin' round no more

it's all over now
a dream, a little late, a little dream, but not too late

pinned to shame

there's a residue of dirt
across her face and it hurts
won't you stop lookin' at her like that
ooh, how could you think
it couldn't be remembered
a witness to her left
the laughter rubs like dirt

push it down, push it down
goes away
the dog barks
the curtains sway
the stickiness of summer clinging to her back
ooh, to swim again, well it would feel so fine
water makes it go away
makes her clean
a whale somewhere sings
this is earth's other side

but a child drawn up, caught up
in some scene
beardsley coffee table book
don't turn away
but know enough not to look
please don't look

yeah, they should surely swim
and maybe sing
sinking well beneath the waves
a different breath
another scene
is all it takes

earth's other side
