lyrics

I found myself dear
Sitting in a candle flame
Never known it better
Nothing's meant to stay the same

I found yourself dear
Sitting by a broken train
Steady going nowhere
Reasoning with the insane

I've been dancing in graveyards
Spreading flowers 'round
Unmoved spectators lying
Neat rows in the ground

Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards
Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come
Dance em all till morning I've been searching for the truth
Dance em all till morning come I've found a heart that's kept it's youth

It's no disrespect dear
Let's finish as we'd like to live
Cast off your old fear
Why rest when there's more love to give

Strip your armor, your daggers
Leave that world behind
Let's go dancing in graveyards
Show them folks a real good time

Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards
Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come
Dance em all till morning come dance em round the graveyard
Dance em all till morning come little mothers get your young

Little mothers get your young sitting in the graveyards
Little mothers get your young dance em all till mornings come
Dance em all till morning I've been searching for the truth
Dance em all till morning come I've found a heart that's kept it's youth
