Original video
My high priest is folded neatly
Back in your box, oh Lord
Gone the song he sang so sweetly
Back in your box, oh Lord

Found myself astride a tiger
Lifted my head just like you said
Drown me now in down of eider
Get me to bed, oh Lord

Lay my bones in the cobblestones
Lay my bones in neat little rows
Lay my bones in the cobblestones
Lay my bones in neat little rows

Angels and idols spiralling wild
Wind in your necks, oh Lord
Landed gentry line up behind me
Wind in your necks, oh Lord

Smokey progress, backroom sages
Let me back in, put back the pin
Now I've found those torn out pages
Can't read the text, oh Lord

Lay my bones in the cobblestones
Lay my bones in neat little rows
Lay my bones in the cobblestones
Lay my bones in neat little rows

In the house where they grew you
There were secrets and mistakes
That the eyes that see through you
Would give anything to erase

But picture them counting your fingers
Waiting for the focus of your eyes
No, no, don't point fingers
Fingers are for pointing at the sky
No, no, don't point fingers
Fingers are for pointing at the sky

Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Lay my bones in the cobblestones

Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Lay my bones in neat little rows

Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Lay my bones in the cobblestones

Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Yah, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Lay my bones in neat little rows
