lyrics

The trinkets left over from time
Dry your eyes
I'm telling you truth

I'm telling you something
These aren't words, these are keys
Down on your knees
I'll raise you still

I watch you get high
Because it's more fun to watch you fall
I want to watch you fall

All the king's horses and all of his men
Couldn't do nothin' so I didn't call them (all fall down)

(I try not to lift a hand.
I try not to lift anything.
In certain situations, you don't want to give any false movements.
Any anticipation, any inkling of what might come next.
But I'm pretty sure
We both know.)

Picture this
A plot with no twist
A mouth with no kiss
A heart with no risk

I love this stuff
'Cause it makes it more real
When you're too numb to feel
When you're too poor to steal from

A new amalgam to ponder
Eyes will wander
But you know
I know you know what it's like

All the king's horses and all of his men
Couldn't do nothin' so I didn't call them (all fall down)

(Do you remember what you said?)

You can't or you won't
You can't or you won't
