Fallen lovers and useless friends
Must you glare?
As life uncovers our unions pulled threadbare
Pleasure taps its vein
Ive been hungry and Ive been full
And Ive been sated some more
I used to know what for
I used to know
All hours look the same
I used to know
What a wish was for
Magic plumes my soul
Pyramids for sale
Full moons on the rail
Pipers play for dawn
Hypnotized, unwind these lines around my head
Whats left for me to leave for you unsaid?
You cant fill with dread
Ive been hungry and Ive been full
Molten at the spoke
I used to know what for
I used to know what for
La-la-la-la-la
A pluck on spiders strings
Gutters form the stars
Children cry out proud
As embers blast my heart
Broken where Id stop
I used to know
What a wish was for
I used to know
What a wish was for
Stolen like a lark
Flicks on tender wrists
Abuse the modern mind
Crush on what youll find
La-la-la-la-la
