lyrics

Adorn yourself with carapace
And paint your face
When you leave your place
But you aren’t the only one

With the lights on low
You drink until your heart beats slow
So you don’t have to know
What it’s like to be alone

You sit by the window
Acting like a real Prufrock
It’s all in the way you talk
Forget your troubles there’s still time on the clock

They hollowed out your bones
And filled them with Michelangelo
And down to the sea you’ll go
But will you hear the siren song?

Oh Lord, I’m guilty too
I’m privileged through and through
And in our society
Looking away is just so damn easy

You were wandering along the half deserted streets
And you were muttering to yourself about the cracks beneath your feet
You said that: “Life deserves perfection; we filled it with deceit”
But you purchased all your beauty and tore up the receipts
And now all you want is love

Hiding under ceilings waiting for our lives to end
Hiding from the feelings waiting for our lives to end
Hiding from the meaning waiting for our lives to end
Hiding under ceilings waiting for the sky to bend

Oh Lord, I’m guilty too
I’m privileged through and through
And in our society
Looking away is just so damn easy
