I'm learning slowly how to rewrite every verse
My sails they catch the wind
I find a cloud and burrow in
When I am older, I hope morals will make sense
I multiply my debts
I never pay the dividends

And common beauty leaves me cold and unimpressed
I smell a blooming flower I shrug away the rest
These tasteless guns and empty promises abound
I'm under cannon fire
My enemies surround
I'm sick of lying to the nicest of the nice
I never act myself
I am fire, I am ice
I cover up my warmth with blankets made of snow
Now the summer is waiting
I close my blinds and sleep all day

Oh, no

And in that moment I'm lost
And one more cause to sing of
All the stars they are like dust
Chemicals and spheres of rust
Everything is meaningless because
All the stars they are like dust

When I awake my lungs inflate with morning air
I'm powerless in time
Ferociously aware
With every breath I'm inching closer to an end
I've got open arms
Won't you help me comprehend?

Oh, no

And in that moment I'm lost
And one more cause to sing of
All the stars they are like dust
Chemicals and spheres of rust
Everything is meaningless because
All the stars they are like dust

I just wanted to say
Oh what a beautiful way
To waste our time

I just wanted to say
Oh what a beautiful way
To waste our time
