lyrics

(Chorus)
Mother the world is spinning
I can't break it’s spell
I woke up one morning
Ate breakfast in heaven
And then lunch in hell

Something’s different tonight
The moon is really bright
Her dolls are always silent
Now they have something to say
They're looking my way
I can't hear the crickets
And the wind isn't blowing
I get up to look in the mirror
Her reflection isn't showing
I lift her mattress
It's lighter than usual
A feeling has left me
A feeling that was mutual

(Chorus)
Mother the world is spinning
I can't break it’s spell
I woke up one morning
Ate breakfast in heaven
And then lunch in hell

I’m done pacing around
I've made my decision
Still in my nightgown
There's no time to change
I throw on shoes and a jacket
The up my hair
Wondering why this night's so strange
I've never done this before
I take a few breaths
Creep past mom's door
Grabbed the shovel in the garage
My heart sinks beneath six feet of dirt
I turn around to see my sister's mirage
She fades away as I run past her
Watching me run past her
I run faster
Until I can no longer see my home
Finally I'm at her stone
Sister what is this all about
I look up at the sky
The full moon is out

(Chorus)
Mother the world is spinning
I can't break it’s spell
I woke up one morning
Ate breakfast in heaven
And then lunch in hell

It's been many hours into the night
I'm at her open coffin
It's not the position we buried her in
I haven’t forgotten about yin
But she's dead
Her pale skin
I don't understand
I can't stop shaking my hand
I see it out the corner of my eye
My body couldn't move
My soul yearned to cry
I couldn't hear anything
Not even my own breath
I lost my senses
Even the smell of death
I opened my mouth to scream
But it was a dud
Even though I couldn't hear it
Maybe someone would
It's in the night air
It's so heavy
How far the wind can go from here
If it falls
It'll rock the earth
The animals will disappear
Someone tell me this isn't true
Those aren't scratches in the coffin
I'll awake in a few
I'm not really here
I’m not really muddy
Those aren't her fingertips
They're not really bloody
Someone make all this good
Those aren't her nails in the wood
Is that what I think
I see my name
She put love around it
Her dream in ink
She didn't suffer here alone
She's in bed at home
I continue to say
I take off my shoes
Lay down with her
Close my eyes
All is silent
Not even a cry
Will they open again
Mother will knock in the morning
She'll come in
She'll find me gone
Think I’m absurd
The dolls staring at our beds
But they won't say a word

(Chorus)
Mother the world is spinning
I can't break it’s spell
I woke up one morning
Ate breakfast in heaven
And then lunch in hell
