"you don't wanna know what's really going on you just wanna say you knew it in the end when you're shaken up from a withdrawal you'll be begging just to start again facing yesterday, you're weakest suit - empty pockets, a broken poker face - goodbye mother father, now my brothers 20/20 if we can start again she's a fucking risk taker when you're not around like a backward letter printed in a book white noise into silence when did you stop thinking for your self? it's no easier to do it now than it was then it's no easier to do it now than it was then place your porcelain on a raging bull she's a fucking risk taker when you're not around like a backward letter printed in a book white noise into silence when did you stop thinking for yourself"

open your eyelids wider she's standing right beside you cat's cradle with our tongues don't tell anyone breath makes ghosts at dawn tear the classroom curtains down make a nest for us to sleep i'll stay awake and think fold your broken words into my hands opened wide for you tear drop tea in thimbles memory's stupid ripples simple song and simple girl simple story, simple world run away to someplace new... simple, stupid point of view i opened my eyes wider i'm standing right beside you cat's cradle with our tongues i won't tell anyone
3.
take the water from the desert bring it to the city put it in the fountains don't deny you're robbing other people of tomorrow's bounty fuck the world so we can host another party a party fly another helicopter cover up the mudslides god forbid the world should see us as we are the gutters, shouting out tomorrow's headlines stop the publications it will be our ruin our ruin

so you went ahead and told everybody something else was going on didn't ever think that we'd find out you were lying to us all along every other time, i looked away, i looked away when the time is right, you'll play the the game, play the game no, i don't wanna, but i gotta push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be alright i coulda told ya, you couldn't fool her the kids these days are smarter than you'll ever give them credit for in another world, we'd be the same, we'd be the same here i'm learning how to take the blame, to take the blame you looked away couldn't fool her no i don't wanna, but i gotta push it aside and tell the kids it's gonna be alright i could told ya, you couldn't fool her the kids these days are smarter than you'll ever give them credit for

i'm counting lines on the road how many paces get me home if i look up i know i am lost my wires are crossed again and i'm so scared to wake up in the wrong jesus christ father, it's harder than i thought another path to take us underground there's not enough light i'll build my world with shapes and scales that you can't touch using numbers using figures that you'll believe take more space, crack the code shrink it down even more till it slips away overheat, overload, let it go it's 40 numbers to remember a lover's name too much light, close the blinds copper wire underground overhead to tether me to you this is a deadland, this is a desert there's not a code we can break to get out we're shapes with form shades without colour here we are walking with no where to go so i'm still counting lines on the road in the dark without you, it's harder than i thought this is the path of only hollow men shadows fall around them
