lyrics

Goodnight, Eileen, wherever you are
I can hide my face, but it's written in the stars
The past is never dead, it’s not even past
Past is past and past is prologue moving in a flash

I know there is some light that we can’t avoid
It's so hard to find the signal embedded in the noise
The past is never dead, it’s not even past
Past is past and these are our lives burning out so fast

Drawing X’s on, drawing X’s on
Drawing X’s on our eyes

They serve us liters of fine wine and champagne
But they charge us by the flute again
The past is never dead, it's not even past
Past is past and our lives are always flying by so fast
