I heard a dynasty fall
(You heard a cocoon)
I'm financing walls over walls
(You live in one room)
I'm unearthing stucco and jade
I'm a broken door
Looking out on the reservoir
That has dried up

I had a dream that I was sorry and young for what I had done
Pauper-sensitive with burlap intentions
I ruled town council with a jelly wrist and a fist full of wrenches
And everything was running like clockwork until
I gave the citizens the bill
The plush tomb I ordered came in early

My heart rests deep within this city
I love every lamppost and street sign
But that's not something to be proud of
Support from an endless recline
It was too hard to tell you in time
But I want you to know that I loved every minute
I want you to know that I never gave up
I want you to know that I kept every second
I want you to know if I never wake up

'Cause Chock's looking for volunteers
There's been no rain for seven years
An offering must be made
And I'm first line
The king for a day
The knight for a lifetime

I heard a Dynasty fall
(You heard a cocoon)
I'm financing walls over walls
(You live in your room)
I'm unearthing stucco and jade

I'm a phantom now
I can't wait to see my wake

Ooh

Spend yourself
You can do it
Sell what's left
You'll get through this
You'll be done before you start

You're not well
Look closer
You've dried up
Your leaves aren't eating
Treat yourself to something young

But you keep on
Taking yourself to them
Making yourself look thin
Pretending you haven't been
Wasting your breath to swim

You're changing yourself for them
Forgetting how you began
But it's hard to remember when
You're wasting your breath to swim

Get back up
You're so dramatic
Sing this song
You'll feel foolish
Write a song about this song
