Disappearing Act Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Come on now, the curtain is drawn
And tomorrow stands before you
Dressed and draped in a coal black cape like a crow
He ignores you

Look again, there's a beautiful girl
Covered cinnamon, a holy land smile
It's the great disappearing act
Done once again for tomorrow crowd

As we're chasing our tails
Biting our nails, so strong and frail

And we build and tear down
Build and tear down, build and tear down
We've run out of time to say
How did it get so late? I'll never know

Step outside, now the door's open wide
And the minions are eager to find him
Put a million miles under your heels
And you're still behind him

Cover your clocks with your chains and your locks
While the seasons get hotter and colder
Stretch your faces and lie about your ages
And still, oh, we're gonna get older

As we're chasing our tails
Biting our nails, so strong and frail

And we build and tear down
Build and tear down, build and tear down
We've run out of time to say
How did it get so late? I'll never know
I'll never know

Hang onto your fingers making your hands unwind
He will escape you every time
From under your pillows
Through open windows and out of the veils

And we build and tear down
Build and tear down, build and tear down
We've run out of time to say
How did it get so late? I'll never know
I'll never know, I'll never know
