oh let me speak in a stony voice
one unraveled and lost by my outstretched drone
and i'll let my child when he sees fit
i'll trust his better judgment
he'll learn it from me
and i'll [unknown] after all
i scraped my lips chasing you
yeah together we brought him down
so it adds up for me

don't ever give me your back again
you were brought up far too well
we both knew from the start
put pen to paper and let them know
it was all just smoke and mirrors
i've seen to the end

and they believed it with all their hearts
we'd see them stumbling by
yes together we brought them
down so it adds up for me
i sat beneath it with no whistle to blow
i sat beneath it with no whistle to blow
all the while who knew
you would see such despair

oh let me share the saintly fun
counting every accident one by one
we'll see the children around the pyre
and hold their little hands as these all sail away

so take not a care for once
the time for testing is done
can't you tell by the smell of care
as it floats through your room
i sat beneath it with no whistle to blow
i sat beneath it with no whistle to blow
all the while who knew
