  • What if there's nothing more to me?
    I'm just skin and bones, there's no mystery.
    What if you're just an empty shell?
    All your spare parts are used up by somebody else.
    What if there's no way to explain some things,
    Like deja vu, and acid rain?
    What if we're all just broken shells with someone else's thoughts?

    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?

    What if there's nothing more to us,
    We're just carbon-based, we're just pixie dust?
    What if life is a magic trick,
    Some quick slight-of-hand just to make us think?
    What if consciousness can expand,
    And we fool ourselves with absurd demands?
    What if there is no point at all,
    We just grow up to fade away?

    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we get lost, slowly drifting through these dead and lonesome heights?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?

    What if there's nothing more to me?
    I'm just skin and bones. (skin and bones)
    What if there's nothing more to you? (more to you)

    What if there's nothing left for us? (left for us, for us)
    Will anyone remember, or does it all just simply turn to dust?
    (Can you feel it? Can you feel it? Can you feel it tonight?)
    Will we be alright?
    (Can you feel it? I can feel it, and the feeling is alright, alright)
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright?
    (Can you feel it? Can you feel it? Can you feel it tonight?)
    Will we be alright?
    (Can you feel it? I can feel it, and the feeling is alright)
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright?
    (Can you feel it? Can you feel it? Can you feel it tonight?)
    Will we be alright?
    (Can you feel it? I can feel it, and the feeling is alright)
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?

    Will we be alright, left alone tonight? (tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight)
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight? (tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight)
    Will we get lost, slowly drifting through these dead and lonesome heights?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight?
    Will we be alright, left alone tonight? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
