Fall down from the holes in the ceiling
Count the cracks in the wall as it's peeling
Peeling away
From you, from me

Your skin is becoming so distant
Distant like the books that I've read
Distant like the pages that I've torn from them

So I close my eyes so that I can't see it
'Cause I heard if you don't see it, then maybe you don't have to believe it
No, no
You don't have to believe it

And the first rule to making yourself better
Is making yourself feel younger
Putting yourself in your place
Realizing all your mistakes

So we went and drove around the town
Looking for a bystander
Or just a person to witness the execution
And make sure that they're all dead
Because my prophecy for everything
Is if you didn't really see it, then it never really happened
And that's the way I look at you and me

You mother, she'll be fine
Her sickness, it will heal in time
You can cross your name right off her will this time
Because she'd leave you nothing but old magazines
And a suitcase filled with things you can't pronounce
Things you never need

You'll wear his best shirt, his best necktie, or his best suit
The one he wore to that interview
And got himself that steady job

So we went and drove around the town
Looking for a bystander
Or just a person to witness the execution
And make sure that they're all dead
Because my prophecy for everything
Is if you didn't really see it, then it never really happened
And that's the way I look at you and me

Well, if you're feeling lost, then join the crowd
It's filled with idiots
And ones who have lost all faith in life
Ones who have lost all faith in love
We all go back to one
We all go back to nothing
Hey look, blue car will drive right into me

So we went and drove around the town
Looking for a bystander
Or just a person to witness the execution
And make sure that they're all dead
Because my prophecy for everything
Is if you didn't really see it, then it never really happened
And that's the way I look at you and me

Fall down from the holes in the ceiling
Count the cracks in the wall as it's peeling
Peeling away
From you, from me
From you, from me

    Hahaha, I love that, she's so awesome.

    edit:


    "Because my prophecy for everything

    About a relationship that felt like she was only reading a book instead of actually being part of the story. It felt like things never lifted off the ground, that no one ever took the next step. It just withered away and now she's left wondering if it meant anything at all.
