lyrics

She had heart despite the townsfolk, she had heart despite the town
And she holds on until the holiness departs

Found her brother for the winter, took the money to his home
There was hardly fitting music for the scene
He took a fall in London, now there’s no way to get around
And he lives off of the demons of the mind
And she holds on until the holiness departs

She went back to her working, publishing a magazine
The snowstorm stirring up a fantastic hell
The whiskey in her mug took to the brim and she is impotent
She drank with ragged shadows of herself
And she holds on until the holiness departs
She holds on ‘till the holiness departs

The devil’s kiss was dimly lit when it finally arrived
A dark and hundred miles overground
The spring was spitting hard when it came down from the mount
And said that winter is followed by god. By god.

She fell into mohair sweaters, swinging coats in a blinding rage
Ripping branches, thudding trees like cannonballs
She is stranded in her tower, a screaming cinderella
And her voice could light a candle in the stars
She holds on until the holiness departs
She holds on till the holiness departs
She holds on until the holiness departs

She had heart despite the townsfolk, she had heart despite the town
And she holds on until the holiness departs
