lyrics

Sometimes you need a pulse
To know you're alive
Sometimes you need the truth
To know a lie
And sometimes you need a heart
To keep it inside
Sometimes you need a soul
To know you've died

I look around
And all I see
Fools and liars
Smiling at me
They make it cold
They make it dull
They make it dry
They make it slow

Take your memories
Take your frowns
Take your ugliness
and take 'em down
Don't need your rhetoric
In my face
I've got everything I need
Right here in my place

You've been disconnected
And put to bed
What really happened
Is better left unsaid
It's not worth getting up
Not just yet
Just try to be quiet now
And don't get upset

We're so alone
You and I
We walk together
Heads in the sky
Feeling strange about it
And not knowing why

Why

Take your photographs
Take your smiles
Take your pretty things
And drive for miles
I need your absurdity
to keep me in my place
I've got nothing that I want
Right here in my place
