Was a long and dark December 
From the rooftops I remember  There was snow
 White snow

 Clearly I remember 
From the windows they were watching  While we froze down below 

When the future's architecture 
By a carnival of idiots on show
You'd better lie low

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

Was a long and dark December 
When the banks became cathedrals 
And the fog
 Became God

 Priests clutched onto bibles  Hollowed out to fit their rifles
And the cross was held aloft 

Bury me in armor 
When I'm dead and hit the ground 
My nerves are poles that unfroze 

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

I don't want to be a soldier 
Who the captain of some sinking ship
 Would stow 
Far below 

So if you love me
Why'd you let me go?

I took my love down to violet hill
 There we sat in snow
All the time she was silent and still 

So if you love me
Won't you let me know?

If you love me
Won't you let me know?
