Rain beats down, down on the outer walls
Down on the skylight, where the streetlights shine
Like unquenchable coals

And I’m up high, trying to say goodbye
The only way I know how
Crude and graceless
Peeking through the eyeholes
Seeing the real you

And just after midnight
When it feels like it’s getting late
I will reveal you
I will reveal you

Crowd’s half-gone, just a few hangers-on
Come to see me finally tear through the stitching at last
And you don’t care, you look almost relieved down there
Like you’re free, like you can breathe now
Like they’ve sawn off your cast
One more sleeper to see through

And by way of honoring
The things we once both held dear
I will reveal you
I will reveal you

Cast of thousands we were the real two
And when I’m alone before a mirror late at night
I will reveal you
I will reveal you

    General CommentThese lyrics are wrongs
    The line "And I’m up high, trying to say goodbye"
    Is actually "And I'm a pie, trying to say goodbye"

    the song is about a pie...
    Peeking through the eyeholes (The slits people put in pies so they don't explode in the oven)
    Seeing the real you (the you who eats pie)

    And just after midnight
    When it feels like it’s getting late
    I will reveal you
    I will reveal you

    (as the midnight snacker/pie eater that you are)

    The song is actually really deep
