About Edit

Sleepy Towns and Cemeteries is the fourth track off of Observatory Mansions by Nicole Dollanganger.

Background Edit

There is thought to be a demo of this song, but evidence suggests it was never rerecorded.

The artwork used for its June 28, 2013 Tumblr posting is of Damien Echols' trailer, who was one of the West Memphis Three.

Lyrics Edit

He casts the kind of glow only a city knows
Light creeping into the coffin
Of these sleepy suburban homes
He’s so alive in the places
Everyone here has a hole
Bury myself in the front lawn
Hope he’ll come dig up my bones

Streets here are cemeteries
They feel alive when they’re dead
He wakes up all of the skeletons
Every time I look at him
He reminds me beautiful things
Can come from something ugly
Flowers grow amongst the weeds
Good things have come from nothing

He casts the kind of glow only a city knows
He’s so alive in the places
Everyone here has a hole
