lyrics

Sofia

Teeth are grey, black as soot
Roots soppy in the muck
The last thing you said was a plea for a life that was easy

“Oh it’s [Sofia] full and grand
Why didn’t you drown yourself in the Seine?
Oh you went down where the river flowed wild, wild [Sofia]” (Rhys)

For a fool played
And danced in a flagrant display
With his glasses and money belt strewn across your floor

Skin felt taut, soft and dense
Heart heavy in the muck
And when in love, would you lie with me, die with me dearly?

Oh she must be here truth in hand
She’s gone and drowned herself in the Seine
Oh she went down where the river flowed wild, wild Sofia

‘Cause a fool played
And danced in a flagrant display
With his noose and his history books strewn across your floor

Hands are young, still and pale
Thoughts dirty in the muck
The last thing you said was a plea for a life that was easy
