You were born with your heart split in four
That's what you'll tell them
When they ask you
Why you frown

You just like the view from the floor
That's what you'll tell them
When they ask you
Why you're down

And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why
And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why

There's nothing but tombstones
Where the railroad tracks should be
It's such a tragedy
That good steel just rusts like that

And the mayor of our town's downtown
Playing chess alone out in the rain
To the whistle of the train
And at night he sleeps on the railroad track

And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why
And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why

Through your make-up
Your age begins to show
You're really much to young
For the things you do, you know

The hummingbirds make their home in my eyes
And your teeth pepper the floor
My heart makes food for the flies
And I nest in your chest of drawers

And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why
And we've all gone insane 'cause we're all gonna die
We all know, but we don't know why
