Sketching your faces, I still don't know your why you're permanent
You want all of the moments stolen
Blind alleys and hallways to basements
said you want to hide till you disappear because nothing and nowhere is golden

apartments are cages, i still don't know what is permanent
maybe all my possessions were precious
truth is all my possessions i somehow lost
been traveling so light and we're flooding back
see it's nothing

some say 'we're lost in space'
some say 'we're falling off the beach'
some say all life is insane
some say but it isn't insane on paper

playgrounds and graveyards and all of our scars are permanent
there's no placement for places
i'll always love you, you
numb is the new high, old memories die out 'till
nothing and nowhere is golden

some say 'you're always only wanting to get off'
some say' our hands are much too soft'
some say all life is insane
some say but it isn't insane on paper
some say 'our hair is in our eyes'
some say 'where art art, there are minds'
some say all life is insane
some say but it isn't insane on paper to have to ask

    General Commenti believe this song might be on Knives Don't Have Your Back as "Nothing & Nowhere" since it's part of the lyrics and #4 on the CD list.

    the ending of the song gets stuck in my head a lot, but its the piano intro that is the most pretty part of the song.
