lyrics

Little Hunger came to stay
boxed and ready on a distant April day
Little Hunger knew the way
and like an arrow to the heart
he found his place

Little Howler grew a voice
strong enough to make the dead rise and rejoice
Little Howler had no choice
Those peaceful 3 a.m.'s
were made to be destroyed

But oh
as the clock goes
so must we go
helplessly

As you leave
I'll burn all my precious toys
I will fill my head with noise
and abandon anything that feels like joy
There's a hole in me the shape
of your body where it lay
and that emptiness won't ever be erased

Little Majesty reposed
and the top of the armoire became his throne
Gazing down on all he owned
We shared a kingdom
We would never be alone

But oh
as the clock goes
so must we go
helplessly

Our time is short together
and when you're gone forever
I promise to remember
how you made the winters better

And I can't face the cold without you

Little Wisdom went to sleep
He climbed the boxes to the bed though it was steep
Of all the memories he keeps
I hope there's room for me
in his eternal dream

And oh
as the clock goes
so must we go
helplessly

As you leave
I'll burn all my precious toys
I will fill my head with noise
and abandon anything that feels like joy
There's a hole in me the shape
of your body where it lay
and that emptiness remains

As you leave
I'll burn all my precious toys
I will fill my head with noise
and abandon anything that feels like joy
There's a hole in me the shape
of your body where it lay
and that emptiness won't ever be erased
