  • They say suicide’s the only way home tonight
    the fourth window is a stairway to heaven
    Sister Jane she smiles at me
    cause she knows that I’ll never leave
    I’ll do my time counting sheep and seconds
    tiny televisions in the chapel on the floor
    I used to mind the static I don’t feel it anymore
    lithium and cigarettes and deadbolts on the door
    we’re just killing time they tell us we’re alive
    painting pentagrams hearing ghosts of conversations
    running out of sevens but the deck is full of aces
    streetcar’s shaking me like a play by Tennessee
    take this little white pill it’ll stop your mind from racing
    tiny televisions in the chapel on the floor
    I used to mind the static I don’t feel it anymore
    lithium and cigarettes and deadbolts on the door
    we’re just killing time they tell us we’re alive
    we’re landing on the moon shooting presidents at high noon
    explosions in the sky Saigon night surrender
    I want to hold your hand burning flags in protest
    flickers blue and white and black shots rang out in Memphis
    tiny televisions in the chapel on the floor
    I used to mind the static I don’t feel it anymore
    lithium and cigarettes and deadbolts on the door
    we’re just killing time they tell us we’re alive
    we’re just killing time they tell us we’re alive
    they say suicide’s the only way home tonight
    the fourth floor window is a stairway to heaven Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
