Half Mast

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album Locket Full Of Moonlight (2002).

This song has been covered by Vigilantes Of Love under the title "Half Mast".
Who would have ever thought
It would come to this
Who would have ever thought
You would betray it with a kiss
And the days bleed into others
And nights they look the same
The empty glass it holds no answers
And the mirrors are all full of shame
The thoughts they turn in circles
Stomachs tied in knots
These memories all lead back to you
And you are what I have not got
The lie is that it happens
Always to someone else
The line you crossed no turning back
And who on earth could ever tell
The flag is stuck at half-mast
It's been that was for awhile
Put to bed the old dreams
And rearrange your smile
I'm turning off the tv set
I did not need this my love
Your thick and heavy farewell note
Well I need something to thin the blood
Main street is never on the map
In the bars where you now dream
And last call is but a whisper
Where eternity should be screaming
A sinner's worthless currency
A psalmist's sad lament
The prophets are without vision
And the shepherds are way too content
I'm opening the window up
Room is spinning black my love
And all I have is this farewell note
Well I need something to thin the blood
