Verse 1

Cold and raining, the city is shimmering glass and wire
Night is falling on unfinished anger that's burning still
Light escapes as it leaps from the windows and disappears
Gigantic faces flicker and grimace on drive-in screens

Chorus 1

What's the thread of meaning that we've lost here?
Every explanation seems to fail here
You can hear a pin drop in the hotel...on the stairs...
In the hallway...nothing moves

Verse 2

Claire is built like a dream, so she models and turns some tricks
Stands in lobbies and waits till she lures the next lonеly boy
Halfway up to her room he gets ambushеd and hacked to death
They split the money, she gets the smallest amount, of course

Chorus 2

What's the thread of meaning that we've lost here?
The passing years have clouded why we came here
You can hear a pin drop in the park...in the church...in the movie house...someone sleeps

Verse 3

Night hangs on with the grip of a cripple who loves his strength
Someone could ask for a match and they might get a torch
All you have is the thread that was tossed down the labyrinth's hole
First kill the Minotaur, then you can follow it out
Don't lose it, follow it out

Outro

Where's the thread? Where's the thread?
Where's the thread? Where's the thread?
