LYRICS:

The traffic lights are out and all the phones are dead
Don’t answer the door for anyone
Before we lost the power think the television said
Stay inside your homes wait for help to come
That must have been weeks ago
Now I’ve got this sinking feeling
You and I are the only ones

Now I’m the last man standing
you are woman’s paragon
The garden’s ours now we’re competitionless
But suppose a third party’s necessary
Just to get it on
That the rituals of love demand an audience
I went I found some mannequins
Set ’em up lining the bedroom
The safe words: eyes to God

My love come and lie down with me.

The world was ripe
The world was crowded
In its compound eye
We felt expansive
In the knowledge
we had our whole lives
Yeah we had options
Now our love
While not enough
It’s all there is

The truth settled down like a euthanized pet
It’s over there’s no need to repopulate
Inscribed in our eyes was the grim epithet
Lovers without leverage, we sealed our fate
But there’s a chance we can still be saved
I cooked up some medicine, darling,
Just drink until there’s nothing left

My love come and lie down with me
