Block out the noise
It's the sound of your jaw shut
Like a mousetrap

Scratch out the sentences
You're right,
They were fading into obscurity

If you can't wait
It'll happen without you
If you want, it can happen again
It's not happiness we're after
With some time we'll make it last

When you hit the floor
Who's listening anyway?
Skin and bones

Wear out your welcome
Like the fool
Has sequined skin so empty

Hold vacant parties
That'll process through the memory
And repeat

If you can't wait
It'll happen without you
If you want, it can happen again
It's not happiness we're after
With some time we'll make it last

When you hit the floor
Who's listening anyway?
On the day you die
Just a souvenir by your bedside
Skin and bones

Swim through an ocean
In the air
There is no escape, what is happening?

Pull from your body
Brittle bones
It's the symptom of possibility

If you can't wait
It'll happen without you
If you want, it can happen again
It's not happiness we're after
With some time we'll make it last

When you hit the floor
Who's listening anyway?
On the day you die
Just a souvenir by your bedside
Skin and bones
