Darling Arithmetic


Bring down the veil
For all to see
Shake off the rain
And return to me

If ours was a dream
The phantom a sacred scheme
Then how did it end so quick
My darling arithmetic

Boxed up your clothes
Cleaned out your room
Lay in your bed
Flew to the moon

Are you hiding up here?
Did they force you to disappear?
Is it all just a dirty trick?
My darling arithmetic

And the merchants say
What they always said
And the lenders say
What they always said
But they only serve a soft reminder
That you are dead
My darling
