Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Billy Saint Claire with the willowy air
Breaks into Trinity Church on a dare
Where the pastor hides a camera
To capture the rapture the day that it comes

But Billy gets afraid and he runs
Don't look in the back room untll you get older
Let the projector on over and over
Over and over

Enter the guests
In their animal masks
I remember the way the antelope danced
With the goat, the dog, the catfish, the crows in the ballroom
The night that we spied from the store room

They lead from the hip
And they spin from the shoulder
Let the projector on over and over
Over and over

Just as long as you walk the earth
Just as long as you walk the earth
Just as long as you run those faces
They'll follow you

So we play out these parts
In the relative dark
They hand you a script
And then they pick you a part
Memorise all your lines
And the most you can hope to be an extra

If they let ya
And then they find you in the bathtub
Alone with the toaster
Let the projector on over and over
Over and over

All the while you felt so alone
All the while you felt so alone
But all the while there were bugs in the phone
And you were not alone...
You're never alone

You're not alone
You're never alone
You're not alone
