The Bones of an Idol

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Twin Cinema (2005).

Watch video at YouTube
We're lit by a torch as we kneel in the court of the king
As we sift through the bones of an idol
We dig for the bones of an idol when the will is gone
'Cause something keeps turning us on

You hold up the cup you've been searching for since you were young
When you still had the bones of an idol
If you still had the bones of an idol, you'd be long, long gone
But something keeps turning you on

We cling to the raft we are missing by half what we wanted
But we escaped with the bones of an idol
Escaped with the belt and the title, but our land is gone
And something keeps turning us on
