Song Of Imaginary Beings (Live)

from Live In Warsaw by IAMX



Her mother said if she couldn’t love
The physical way a woman should
Then where else could she could go
Where the sisters and the fathers can’t save her soul?

Send them in, see them on
If she can’t find a lover she’ll fashion one
Imaginary man
Like the burnt out poets in the Hinterland

The hourglass sees what shelf-life does
She asked exactly: Tell me what is love
But breathing life alone?
And just the words from prophets and religious shows

Imagine hurt, imagine tears
She opened up until she disappeared
And vanished hand in hand
With all the long lost children locked in Neverland

The phoenix says – Burn for me
The double says – Lie for me
The serpent says – Beg for me
The siren says – Die for me

Why use the word, when the word needs the belief?
