Through these phone lines
I'll catch you checking out the time
With my shadows
So we toss belongings off the covered bridge
And run for it
We won't admit
We're not different
Just more frightened
'Cause outside there's protocols
And cranes that build themselves
And nothing else

You blink and you think we're gone
Why do you sing that song so fast?
I'll never pay attention
We're young but not deformed
We're just like those other boys and girls
That's what I'm trying to say

We keep believing
What they're selling
Just because they talk so loudly
And all the monsters
That we heard of
They're all moving to Sell-ifornia
You're swallowing
What they're shoveling
You'll never stop falling for it
Unless we coalesce into raindrops
And drown the entire midwest

You blink and you think we're gone
Why do you sing that song so fast?
I'll never pay attention
We're young but not deformed
We're just like those other boys and girls
That's what I'm trying to say

Give us a warning
Caution signs
Some room to breathe
There's a boy that lives inside of me
And he makes me do some strange things
In the future we'll communicate
Raise the dead and make 'em wait
For a countdown
And then evacuate
