The Fall A FIGURE WALKS Lyrics

Last updated:

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
