1.
We are both sinners and saints In the same body It just depends on who you like more It just depends on who's pinned to the floor My legs are sturdy Your hands are dirty My legs are sturdy Your hands are dirty If you unwind yourself you can stand A voice shouted ripping the sky in half This is what you get When you mess with god, the devil And everything between
2.
I've got a secret to tell I hope you're listening Hope you bleed from the ears when the air pulses How do you think sound is made If you don't use it you lose it I know how sound is made It's when you're moving too fast You said it yourself You said it yourself Overheat your battery You lost track of what you are Circa 2000 and you're living You're living When you reach the sand Hope you know it's burning Hope you know it's burning Hot sun and body heat never did you any good So when you fall I've got it Lost track of what you are It's just part of what you get It's hardly consequence
3.
Leave our bodies on the ground Use them as anchors No one will know the difference Let's suppose Hollywood is a mountain lion And we're goats to the slaughter Box office martyr Sticks and stones are perfect for a fire Let's stop throwing them in Illuminate the skies above our heads They use the stars to count to the end If we can't see them Take a deep breath, the air is thinning Everything is falling In and out the sun moves us And soon we'll dance like our lives depend on it Reel us in, my eyes dilate from the movement Let's illuminate the skies above our heads Reel us in, my eyes dilate from the movement We spin disorienting my body as well
4.
Story on top of story The sun warms our bodies Flailing in the sand Left behind to fill your lungs with water You're lost in the current But you're not the same You're lost in the current But you're not the same Don't move your mouth to speak Make it so you don't think You won't want to or need to Close your eyes to communicate Let us know soon Speak morse code with electrical figures And copper wire branches Lose your legs in your sleep Leave your body behind In time
