lyrics

behind the opaque walls
in bedrooms and bathroom stalls
abandoned homes and broke-in cars
we're taught to hide our sins indoors
tongues and teeth are at my back
as I stumble up the steps
out into the cold tempest
I'm a pretty marionette

all I've ever wanted
is to go back down unto the playground
once we built an empire
now all we can do is watch it coming down
when did leading ladies
start to take their final bows in hospital gowns?

spasms spark of phantom pain
in the brutal freezing rain
it is easier to obtain forgiveness
than permission
so thrust ahead and bombs away
through the remnants of the day
I will wait and hope and pray
that you have been sobered

I like to be classy so I drink chardonnay
with my bowls of cereal
now I finally know what all those kids
in the commercials were talking about
I'm where all the little characters go
when there's no use for them anymore

above the sky is burning
the demons sleep beneath my feet
isn't it funny
that hell's got all of this beautiful scenery?
