This dragon's blood is magical
I put a name upon it
She meets me underneath the moon
Behind an early rising sun

All of us lazy logicals
We leave our hearts behind
They tell you when you're young
Don't be so blind

Before the devil knows we're dead
We painted the whole scene in red
We leave our markings on the young
Our heights, our weights, our widths, our run
All mothers shaking in their shoes
All daughters know just what to do
All hearts an open door
The house we built is now a vacant home

Feel it in your heart
Feel it in your fingers
Before the others start
We can hide away our love

Too many nights of fun
Too many nights of freedom

Now the old is done
Traded for the young
We hide the smoking gun
It's all a blur when we are done

Now the old is done
Traded for the young
We hide the smoking gun
