A childless widow of a nation
You cry like guns across the water
Yet we expect you to bring springtime, it isn't fair
Searchlights wither in your hair

You are a silent movie, Sarah

Men build their industries around you
Gathered in withers of your hair
They're looking farther on reflection
You're left to die of exposure, Sarah
Sarah with the beating heart
Sarah with the mouth of stone
Sarah with the -
You are a silent movie, Sarah

Let her go, the light is fading
I cry like guns across the water
She didn't ask to be your remake or your muse
The parasites inside of booze

Sarah with the beaten heart
Sarah with the mouth of stone
I call but there is no one home

Sarah with the beaten heart
Sarah with the mouth of stone
I call but there is only echo

From a recording machine
Screaming [?] my dreams
You see our poets (poets)
Do an odious business
Loving womankind (womankind)
As lions love Christians
So who are you to deny
Who are you to deny them, Sarah?
(Sarah)
(Sarah)
(Sarah)
(Sarah)
(Sarah)

(Echo, echo)
Round and round and round and round and round

Absolutely. But I've never known an artist with a worse ratio of musical quality/album cover quality.

Nice tune, but that cover art... 
 She described her last art cover as "who doesn't like a chick on the hood of a hot car?"  so perhaps this in keeping.

Her voice is amazing. I would love to hear this live.
hate this song only because it makes a miserable earworm for me every time i hear it so skip skip skip.  
Please ,a cigarette. 😳
She looks a lot like Celine Dion on this cover.
This entire album is on unusually high rotation this month. It’s too bad it’s not better.

Sure can't NOT notice it. Quite like it, though.

How long has it been since this record was released? 6-weeks or thereabouts. Long enough for me to declare Halls of Sarah the best cut on this LP. Notched my number up to a 9 too. 
 
We need to be hearing way more of this album on RP... It's her best since Fox Confessor.

As for best track, this is up there. But (while I know it's a cover) I really like Sleep All Summer too...
LOVE ME SOME NEKO!!!!!!
Another unexpected gem from the expected from RP. Thanks, Bill.

Agree. Just not sure I find the whole album to be among Neko's best work.
That is one wild album cover.

Neko in the NY Times late last month:

New Neko, like a 3-pack of sunscreen from Target, is a summertime requisite. Bring it all on. 
Nice tune, but that cover art... 
Sweet!  New Neko.
