Lyrics[edit | edit source]

While I quietly throw though the air
All your little jokes
Any smoke from any old fire
Keep my trash heaps stoked

Did I mention I may forget
Why I even came
I'm addicted so I'm absolved
Of any cause of pain

Here comes the wave
It's higher than any one before
My love, be brave
As it knocks our bodies back to shore

Eyes closed, we see
Green blades dancing in the sun
Maybe we've been
Putting on a show for everyone

I'll be kinder if you'll be kind
Keep the drugs at bay
You'll pull the cord and see how we fly
With only ourselves to blame

And I'd bet you'd stay
If you knew what would happen if you did
Who cares, I'll say
As I cast my ribbons to the wind

We'll always be
Stars with million-dollar guns
We eat for free
And put on a show for everyone

We eat for free
To put on a show for everyone
We eat for free
To put on a show for everyone
We eat for free
To put on a show for everyone
We eat for free
To put on a show for everyone
