lyrics

Take the ax up and split the boards
We were made out of steel and stone
There are emeralds buried in our throne
Tear them out, they were always yours

Bury the marks that his beauty made,
beat your voice back until it retreats
Water fills up cracked and empty streets
We have all seen better days

Crown your king with a halo of gasoline
Envied by all but the stubborn and vain
Dry your eyes, get up, there's nothing waiting here
Don't cry out or you'll disappear
I did and I lost myself in Maine

Eat up the country, devour the road
there is more here than nothing at all
Comforts wither, never seemed so small
Sometimes there's no one sharing the load

Laud your king with a scepter electric,
now burn him to ashes and lick up the stain
Dry your eyes, get up, there's nothing waiting here
Don't cry out or you'll disappear
I did and I lost myself in Maine

Try goodbye
Can you look yourself in the eye?

Robe your king with the skin of the ocean
and swallow the swords that might carve out the pain
Dry your eyes, get up, there's nothing waiting here
Don't cry out or you'll disappear
So drive away, coward, and never face the fear
and denial will always reign
He got me lost deep in Maine
Lost and alone, here in Maine
