  • This is how you make yourself vanish into nothing
    And this is how you make yourself worthy of the love that she
    Gave to you back when you didn't own a beautiful thing

    This is how you make yourself call your mother
    And this is how you make yourself closer to your brother
    And remember him back when he was small enough to help you sing

    You thought God was an architect, now you know
    He's something like a pipe bomb ready to blow
    And everything you built that's all for show goes up in flames
    In twenty- four frames

    This is how you see yourself floating on the ceiling
    And this is how you help her when her heart stops beating
    What happened to the part of you that noticed every changing wind

    This is how you talk to her when no one else is listening
    And this is how you help her when the muse goes missing
    You vanish so she can go drowning in a dream again

    You thought God was an architect, now you know
    He's something like a pipe bomb ready to blow
    And everything you built that's all for show goes up in flames
    In twenty- four frames

    You thought God was an architect, now you know
    He's sitting in a black car ready to go
    You made some new friends after the show
    But you'll forget their names
    In twenty- four frames
