Marilyn - The Static Age

Marilyn in white silence
a sister for her and me and you
fill blank space beneath dead weight
when she's in the room
she laughs just like falling angels
laughs just like all her dreams came true
in a room full of nameless faces
in a room full of you
sister dear
the silence is closing in now
and all we have
are questions that we can't answer
she's all that she ever wanted
so hollow she always rings right true
she paints herself beautiful pictures
and wastes them on you
sister dear
the silence is closing in now
and all we have
are questions that we can't answer
the water washes over me
all jagged nails and baited breath and the knife is always turning
with faith and love down on her knees
this slips down around my neck
when faith and love become belief
we're drowning slowly
she's charcoal bluebird beauty
buried in seas of flesh and bone
hidden in masks of ivory
it's all that she knows
sister dear
the silence is closing in now
and all we have
are questions that we can't answer
