  • Where's everybody going?
    Is it around to the pleasure house?
    We're fighting an ugly war
    And it's no good to freak out

    Oh, please, it's obscene
    I've seen your true colors
    And there's nothing underneath, only green
    I stared at the pictures of canyons open between

    When I caught your eye, I glimpsed a black star
    Going on and on, you're not looking civilized

    You're busted into pieces
    You've polished off your cocaine
    Your face is fucking numb
    I can see the fear in your heart
    Look out the window
    See what you could've had
    And I could be, I could be the
    Best friend you'd ever have

    Where's everybody gone?
    They've all abandoned my house
    Nobody comes and goes
    But it's no good to freak out

    Oh, please, it's obscene
    You focus on others
    And just pick apart their dreams
    It's fucking mean
    I tear at the stitch and there's nothing on underneath

    When I caught your eye, I glimpsed a black star
    Going on and on, it's a shame to be civilized

    You're picking up the pieces
    You're stepping off the ghost train
    You could've been the one
    I've got no more fear in my heart
    Look out the window
    See what you're gonna have
    And I will be, I will be the
    Best friend you've ever had

    Weird leisure comes when all pleasure goes
    Weird leisure comes when all pleasure goes

    Weird leisure comes when all pleasure goes
    Weird leisure comes when all pleasure goes

    You picked up all the pieces
    And started your life again
    You're my number one
    I love only hope in my heart
    We're at the window
    Surveying all you have
    And I believe, I believe that
    It's my turn, don't hold me back

    It's my turn, don't hold me back
    It's my turn, don't hold me back
    It's my turn, don't hold me back
