Lyrics of Phantom Limb

Frozen into coats,
White girls of the North,
Filed past one, five and one
They are the fabled lambs,
A Sunday ham,
The ancient snow.

Congelados en capas
Blanco niñas del Norte
Fuego pasado una, el fuego un
Los corderos son los legendarios
Un jamón Domingo
La nieve antigua


And they could float above the grass,
In circles if they tried,
A latent power I'm known to hide,
To keep some hope alive,
That a girl like I could ever try,
Could ever try.

Y pueden flotar por encima de la hierba
En los círculos si se trató de
Un poder latente sé que ocultar
Para mantener viva alguna esperanza
Que una chica como yo nunca podría intentar
nunca se pudo probar


So we just skirt the hallway signs,
A phantom and a fly,
Follow the lines and wonder why
There's no connection.

Así que sólo la falda de la firma pasillo
Una mosca y un fantasma
Siga las líneas y se preguntan por qué
No hay conexión


And weakened falling eyes,
In cheap shots from the tribe,

Y debilitado ojos caída
En golpes bajos de la tribu


And we're often in Marcus' porch again,
Another afternoon with the gold head tunes,
And pilfered booze.

Y estamos a menudo en el pórtico de Marcus 'de nuevo
Otra tarde con las melodías de la cabeza de oro
Y el alcohol robado


We wandered through the mama's house,
And the milk from the window lights,
Family portrait circa ninety-five,
This is that foreign land,
With the sprayed on tans,
And it all feels fine,
Beats circus slime,

Recorrimos la casa de su mamá
Y la leche de las luces de la ventana
Familia alrededor retrato noventa y cinco
Este es el país extranjero
Con el rociado en broncea
Y todo se siente bien
Beat it limo alrededor de


So, when they tap our mundane heads,
To zombie-walk in our stead,
This town seems hardly worth our time,
And we'll no longer memorize or rhyme,
Too far along in our climb,
Stepping over what now towers to the sky,
With no connection.

Así, cuando toque la cabeza mundanas
Para zombis a pie en nuestro lugar
Este pueblo parece no vale la pena nuestro tiempo
Y nos quedaremos sin memorizar o rima
A caer a lo largo de nuestro crimen
Pasando por encima de lo que ahora las torres hacia el cielo
Sin conexión
