In Other Words Lyrics

by Ben Kweller

Another night slips away
In other words I should say
There are no words he should say
There are no words

In his eyes I see the fear
That only time could disappear
If only time could reappear
Now's the time

Somethin' to take it away
To take it away, to take it
And don't let it stay
Don't let it stay, don't let it

The butterflys are passive, aggressive
And put their problems on the shelf
But they're beautiful

And he'll realize the only thing thats real
Are the kids that kid themselves
And the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

The multi-life is better than
The one we're in, the one we knew
'Cause everyone is seein' through everyone

Steppin' on his gold terrain
He's movin' on with bold refrain
His blatantly old campaign is movin' on

Somethin' to take it away
To take it away, to take it
And don't let it stay
Don't let it stay, don't let it

The butterflys are passive, aggressive
And put their problems on the shelf
But they're so beautiful

And he'll realize the only thing thats real
Are the kids that kid themselves
And the demise of the beautiful
What is beautiful?

What can't stay goes away
What can't stay goes away

It starts stopping when it stops stopping
It starts stopping when it stops stopping
It starts stopping when it stops stopping
...
