I damn my mouth and ears every time you hear me complain.
As long as nothing moves, as long as nothing's new, it's
okay.

All your friends are stains
on some sheets that you'll throw away
when you skip to the last half page and destroy the ending.

Save your stares for strays
as you shuffle and back away
to a corner where you'll feel safe in your perfect ending.

Oh my, so young and so pretty.
Hold your daughter close - it just might spread.
It's a crime - still young and still pretty.
Calculate the dose and keep your head.

Through every stare
she'll walk right on.
Keep your cares -
she'll still shine on.

I'll keep my swallowed fears
next to yours. They taste like champagne.
As long as no one moves,
I'll lie and look at you. We're
okay.

Through every stare
she'll walk right on.
Keep your cares -
she'll still shine on.
(So where's your pity now?)
Words like fair -
(I can't hear a sound)
they're to cry on.
(Where's your pity now?)
Save your stares -
(I can't hear a sound)
she'll still shine on.
(Where's your pity now?)

All your friends are stains.
Save your stares for strays.
As long as nothing moves...
As long as nothing's new...

    General CommentGreat song, it's actually quite haunting. Haven't decided what meaning I'm quite taking from it. But it always seems to fit no matter what my mood.
