The Widow
The Mars Volta Lyrics


He's got fasting black lungs
Made of clove splintered shardes
They're the kind that will talk
Through a weezing of coughs
And I hear him every night
In every pore
And every time he just makes me warm

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Must I hide
'Cause I'll never never sleep alone

Look at how they flock to him
From an isle of open sores
He knows that the taste is such
Such to die for
And I hear him every night
On every street
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from?
Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
'Cause I'll never never sleep alone

Oh Lord
Said I'm bloodshot for sure
Pale runs the ghost
Swollen on the shore
Swollen on the shore
Everynight
In every pore
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from?
Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
'Cause I'll never never sleep alone

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Let me die
'Cause I'll never never sleep alone

For your Karaoke:

He's got fasting black lungs
Made of clove-splintered shards
They're the kind that will talk
Through a wheezing of coughs
And I hear him every night
In every pore
And every time he just makes me warm

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Must I hide
'Cause I'll never, never sleep alone

Look at how they flock to him
From an isle of open sores
He knows that the taste is such
Is such to die for
And I hear him every night
On every street
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from...

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
'Cause I'll never, never sleep alone
Oh Lord

Said I'm, said I'm, said I'm,
Said I'm bloodshot for sure
Pale runs the ghost
Swollen on the shore

Every night
In every pore
The scales that do slither
Deliver me from...

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Then I'll hide
'Cause I'll never, never sleep alone

Freeze without an answer
Free from all the shame
Let me die
'Cause I'll never, never sleep alone

Like if you use it!

"Said I'm, Said I'm
Said I'm,
Said I'm bloodshot for sure...
Pale runs the ghost.
'til I'm, 'til I'm swollen on the shore
Swollen on the shore

Every night
on every pore
the scales that do slither
deliver me from!"

For those that don't know, the trumpet solo in this song is performed by Flea from the RHCP.

Jnellie Eightyfive

U mean from BTTF

GKasper

@Phil Foe Not sure about this particular song but he is listed for other tracks on the album. Flea and John have actually done quite a bit w/ The Mars Volta.

Phil Foe

Did John do guitar on this too?
