The ghosts when they come make a sound
the sound of their chains.
They are sentenced to their chains
they are chained to their sentences.
One by one the ghosts
come with the sound of chains.
They don't know the sound from the chains
and there is no difference.
And the lovers hear the ghosts
that come in their mail.
They hear the chains and know the sentences
cannot be revoked.
They don't know the before from the after
they don't know the lovers from the ghosts.
And the guests hear the chains
they feel them in their mouth.
