I never knew it 'til it passed
Was always covered in a cast
I was constructed of a cloth that couldn't last

So now I'm barely blood and flesh
Just an anatomic sketch
Coming to find this may be as solid as we get

But calm...
Well, that's just what they'll keep me
But what'd it ever get me
But a fumbling peace of mind?

I heard they hunt it down in droves
Something they'll never really know
Guess I was just another stone they couldn't throw

Oh, I sent a letter to the state
That they could not transliterate
And felt the brittle gnashing teeth of "it's too late"

(write down and translate the measure of your mistakes...)
(you can't tell your new face, if you recall the rest of us...)

Oh so calm...
Well, that's just what they'll keep me
But what'd it ever get me
But a fumbling peace of mind?

So what, I caught it on a tripwire
The entire Orange Empire
And joined in with the crash
And swallowed all the ash
