lyrics

Midnight sweepers they come
Running round from dusk till dawn
They jostle and they broom
Through the carcasses of noon

Midnight sweepers they come
Picking up where we left
Picking out blood from the cracks
Spinning our sorrows to candle wax

In the morning
All is bright
All is fine
All is kind
The morning dew they scattered in the night
Smells like a billion butterflies
They flutter and they fly
Into the morning light
They rest on your forehead and you smile
You let out a sigh

Because the
Midnight sweepers they've come and gone
Running round from dusk till dawn
Seeking shelter from the moon
In the gutters of gloom

Midnight sweeping
Into the night
