The Triffids - Lifelike lyrics

Weak signal, bad light
Snake in the grass, I wake in fright
And fall to my kees, I look to the sky
I'm shaking like a leaf but you gave me the second sight
Lifelike, so close to the truth
I close my eyes, when I think of you
Everything stops, nothing moves
Now I touch your body every prophecy is proven true

MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE & JOHN, ROLLED AWAY THE STONE
BUT THE BODY WAS GONE

I put my fingers deep into your palms, I feel
Like a scarecrow when I'm in your arms
I have no fear, I don't know the word
But when you call my name, I will know that it is my turn

These days a smile costs more than a frown
Everybody's got an opinion or an axe to be ground
Lifelike, so close to the truth
I close my eyes, when I think of you
Everything stops, nothing moves
Everything is proven now, proven to be true

MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE & JOHN, ROLLED AWAY THE STONE
BUT THE BODY WAS GONE

WE'LL KNOW MORE ABOUT IT FURTHER ALONG

Lifelike
Oh, you come before me
