lyrics

Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listen

In the best of all possible worlds, I was a teenage stepping stone
Before the clouds, I remain the same, only my head has grown, so

Go where I go, your eyes are blue from all the lonely people
Hand on a cheek, tell your saviors
I look and find no ecstasy, if all the rest is free
A year with nobody could never falter me

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Kiss me on on the mouth somebody
Blink, it doesn’t mean you saw me

Give up meat for a piece of the tail
I couldn’t tell you why
I join the herd and give rise to the frail
We’re better left inside, boy

Hah...

Hiding in bathtubs, I prayed for release
Mind over nerves that stretch as far as the breeze
Nona…

I just tick by degrees
Bring me some peace


Is it touch, or is it something worthwhile
I could be pretty like a contorted smile
Baby, you paint my face alright
Won’t somebody come make my sparks ignite

I hear and forget, I see and believe,
I do and understand, lose and remember

I look and find no ecstasy, if all the rest is free
A year with nobody, could never falter me
When all the dice are thrown, platonic seeds are sown
My friends and flaws are known, but I still feel alone
I know, I know ‘bout it

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Kiss me on on the mouth somebody
Blink, it doesn’t mean you saw me

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Sharp, you file a tack, drink ether
Dig deeper to stay, yeah

Is it touch, or is it something worthwhile
I could be pretty like a contorted smile
Baby, you’ll paint my face alright
Won’t somebody come make my sparks ignite

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, didn’t you know, I listened
