    Series of signals, visible marks — so wrong to assume there was light in the dark
    An owl, an alley cat, a hermit crab
    We say there was nothing that we could’ve done — a silent lie when we need one
    You’re brought back here to your ancestral home

    Go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
    Yes, tell me now, did you do it according to plans?

    And who would start believing in this too late hour
    I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

    And whom did I know?
    An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat

    And we saw all the signals saw all the marks — so why assume there was light in the dark?
    Shell cracked open, pearl was black
    And we try hard to think it was nobody’s fault — means we don’t want to be human at all
    You’re brought back here along with the things you owned

    So go on tell me, I really want to know, through the sunlight, through the snow
    Tell me now, was it in the heat of the moment?

    Who would start believing in this too late hour
    I lay my flower, I hide my dirty face

    And whom did i know?
    An owl, a hermit crab, an alley cat
    Shell cracked open, pearl was black
