If you found the words, would you really say them?
Or silent through the verse
Will mumble punctuation?
Remembering the line, an empty metaphor
That you savor by yourself
Your never cure
If I forgot the lines, is it easy enough to fake it?
Or do you need a moment to re-memorize
And model it like a curse half disguised?

Leers, cheers, whispers and tears
The final taste before you're taken away
Odds, ends, final amends
It's all right to say it
Just as long as you don't really think so

Give me a little room
To get on with concentration
Just enough to know
What I'm missing in education
Borrowing all the hours that you gave to me to
It's a wonder I could ever breathe
Under all our thoughts
We'll hear the final answer
Of all the things you are that have been paralleled
All the voices that were raised and finally fell

Leers, cheers, whispers and tears
The final taste before you're taken away
Odds, ends, final amends
It's all right to say it
Just as long as you don't really think so

Lights
No show
No sex
That's all you get
No wait
No calls
No remittance for what you know

Leers, cheers, whispers and tears
The final taste before you're taken away
Odds, ends, final amends
It's all right to say it
Just as long as you don't really think so

    General CommentThere's a lot of issues with these lyrics. Mostly they're good.

    I think it's "With a lot more punctuation" instead of "Will mumble punctuation". But to be fair this line is really hard to hear.

    Also, this is just guessing, but "Or silent through the verse" sounds to me like "Or sliding through the verse". Because "punctuation" in that line connotes that the person speaking is actually saying something.

    "You're never cured" instead of "Your never cure" because the latter makes no sense and there's an audible syllable at the end of cure.

    "Leers, cheers, whispers and the tears" instead of "Leers, cheers, whispers and tears". There's clearly a "the" before tears.

    "That final taste before you're taken away" instead of "The final taste...". Same with this, it's clearly "That" instead of "The".

    Anyway, just my thoughts.
