Lyrics

So far, so clear.
Transmission I hear.
I know not, what I see.
Transmission complete.

I met you at the wrong time,
Far too much on my mind.
No tears from statue eyes,
Even sadness I can’t do right.

And if I’m gonna fall,
Honey let me fall.
You know it’s my fault,
I flew too close again.
A beautiful parasite,
What I need least most,
And I will try to be your most gracious host.

My lungs have given up.
Collapsed inside their cage.
You say you won’t act,
But the whole world’s a stage.

When oxygen is not,
Delivered to my brain.
What you won’t give me,
Something more arcane.

And if I’m gonna fall,
Honey let me fall.
You know it’s my fault,
I flew too close again.
A beautiful parasite,
You’re what I need least most,
And I will try to be, your most gracious host.

I have seen what men believe.
I am the same, I do believe.
I have seen what men believe.
I am the same, I don’t believe.

Coughing up all that I lack.
Coughing up what I want back.
But nothing’s gonna save us now!

But nothing’s gonna save us now!
But nothing’s gonna save us now!
But nothing’s gonna save us now.
