# The Fall A FIGURE WALKS Lyrics

A figure walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

Days of booze and roses

Shine on us, free us all

Who is not irascible

He is no genius

A figure walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

The old golden savages

Killed their philosophers

Thought brought the drought about

Something followed me out

Goes out again

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

And if it grabs my coat tail

I will turn and hit it

It may remove the pegs

Keeping my eyes open

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

It's got eyes of brown, watery

Nails of pointed yellow

Hands of black carpet

It's a quick trip to the ice house

A quick trip to the ice house X 3

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

You X 7

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

A figure walks behind you

A shadow walks behind you

You X 3

And tales of terror

Which my father told me

They never scared me

But not only is it the blind

Who cannot see

That figure behind you

Behind you x 2

You x 2

That figure kept on walking

Behind you

There's a man on my trail X 4

He's also behind you

Behind you X 4

That figure kept on walking X 4

Behind you X3

A figure walks 3
