Pharaoh's Daughter

This song is by The Secret Machines and appears on the album Now Here Is Nowhere (2004).

Ah, ah

Hold on, the recent exchange
Is just another face arranged
By the knife edge of time
And just another waste of mine

I wonder, ah
Was that the pharaoh's daughter?
Or the wealth I still remember?

We were dressed in uniforms left over from the war
A tourniquet, an iron vest, our emblem was a star
The younger ones looked frightened
Left unguarded by the clouds
While sons of fire with trembling hands
Burned heroes to the ground

Is it true? I wonder, ah
Was that the famous daughter
Of the well-heeled revolving oh-so-fine?
While we were building caskets
For boys in leather jackets

The girl's quite familiar
