The Piano Knows Something I Don't Know

Album: Pretty. Odd (2008)
  • I won't cut my beard and I won't change my hair
    It grows like fancy flowers but it grows nowhere
    My hair, my hair

    If I could build my house just like the Trojan horse
    I'd put a statue of myself upon the shelf
    Of course, of course, of course

    She's the smoke
    She's dancin' fancy pirouettes
    Swan diving off of the deep end
    Of my tragic cigarette
    She's steam
    Laughing on the windowpanes
    The never-ending swaying haze
    Oh, that ever smiling maze
    Oh, that ever smiling maze
    Ballet

    Everything's gone missing
    I've lost more songs to floods
    I can't prove this makes any sense but

    I sure hope that it does
    Perhaps
    I was born with curiosity
    The likes of those of old crows
    The likes of those of old crows

    And oh, how the piano knows
    The piano knows something
    I don't know

    I won't cut my beard and I won't change my hair
    It grows like fancy flowers but it grows nowhere
    My hair, my hair

    If I could build my house just like the Trojan horse
    I'd put a statue of myself upon the shelf
    Of course, of course, of course
    Of course, of course, of course
    Of course, of course, of course

    Of courseWriter/s: BRENDON URIE, GEORGE ROSS, JONATHAN WALKER, SPENCER SMITH
