lyrics

Back behind the wind in the corner of the world and all of its horror
Made of sounds and disorder and carefully laid bricks and mortar
Playing house x3

Well I know I said I'm a liar, a mouth of soap and pants on fire
I'm crossing myself as I kneel to be sired, but if I knew you I wouldn't desire
Anything x3

Well I know that it's all been done
Yes I know that it's all been said
And the prizes I could win were already won
And the Greeks did it all but they're still dead HAHA!

A face with a name sewn in the bone, basking in the light she's never been shown
Cliffs of candy sour and alone, a tongue of cotton and eyes of stone
Staring out x3

Questions abound without answers, twirling in my brain like a hundred dancers
Made of lime and thirteen cancers, asking me just how to romance her
But I don't know x3

But I know that it's all been done
Yes I know that it's all been said
And the prizes I could win were already won
and the Greeks did it all but they're still dead (THANK GOD!)
