song by Mark Lanegan Band
Two bells ringing at once lyrics

I saw golden ship sinking by the light of moon,
Saw Harlequin swimming naked in a pool
I missed catching the midnight train.
I was the man at night,
They forced my face into the dirt
But with my broken teeth, I tore the buttons from my shirt
I heard two bells ringing at once.
King David Blade is harping to the wind
When he slept, I hang up to the chestnut tree for him
Death at my back, I am [?] a Seraphine
Upon a wall I paint the flowerly
Near the canal, where the running barge to sleep
Wandered the packs while a hydra stand here weak
I heard two bells ringing at once.
Walked a dusty road, dragging an ancient driving wheel
Met the [?] came upon the gallows there
Saw body hanging, swinging in the cool air
I heard two bells ringing at once.

[Instrumental break]

King David Blade sat to mourn for two
I followed its call through April, May and June
Sorry summertime all through December too
I felt its sound down to my darkest deepest roots
I heard two bells ringing at once.
I heard two bells ringing at once.
