SNOWBALL

Tied this letter to the red balloon
Flew this letter off across the roofs
Along with all the plans I made
Ooh...

Over crippled cranes and twisted steel
Deadlines overgrown and missing wheels
I told you so, communicate
Ooh...
Told you so
Told you so

The biggest of mistakes can be forgiven
But a snowball of little white lies will crush your house

From the razor wire in old Iraq
Oil is what you make the nation's flag
Pray you never sleep again
Ooh...

Oh and laughable the crying shame
Oh the mark I made against your name
I hope this finds you less than sane
Ooh...
Told you so
Told you so

For you to think that history's rewritten
You'd have to think the dead will be forgotten
Your snowball of little white lies has crushed our house

When the pills you take
No longer help you
You're fading in your chair
And would've met him
We see the lightning
You hear the birdsong
You hear the voices you've been holding off for so long
Words around you
And then a hurricane
A hundred thousand souls
And everyone in pain
We'll come and visit you
We'll come and visit you

(Never sleep again)

When the pills you take
No longer help you
Fading in your garden chair
With a wooden tool
You see the lightning
You'll hear the birdsong
You hear the voices you've been holding off for so long
Words around you
And then a hurricane
A hundred thousand punctured souls
And everyone in pain
We'll come and visit you
We'll come and visit you

(Never sleep again)

By "Elbow" in the album,
Help: A Day in the Life
