Well, the future spills it's intangibles
An unknown set of variables
A path that spliten infinitely up ahead

So tell me what's the use to pick and choose
From what you should or shouldn't do?
That's time spent better sleeping in your bed

Or wide awake in a shopping mall
Trying clothes on from off of the wall
Yeah, anything to entertain yourself

'Cause a costume can be quite comfortable
It can make you feel more beautiful
It can even make you look like someone else

But it's still you, so there's nothing you can do
Like a bad habit, the one you couldn't kick, there it always is
And it's nothing that no doctor's gonna fix

They pat your back bruised with their accolades
And all four walls are a trophy case
But that doesn't make it any less of a cage

But you can make it all less difficult
By embracing the ephemeral
Then you'd never have to worry or explain

'Cause if it's really all just physical
Then my memory's immaterial
So why then do I remember you at all?

But I do, I do, my friend, I seen your face
We shared a cup, I know the taste
Its sweetness is relentless on my lips

So help me drink in everything that is like a freed convict
Drunk on redemption from the way I've been
But I swear this time, that things will be different

Well, right and wrong, they have never been that far apart
For those who'd write that sentence where you hang, hang
We will be lifted up from all of this
Yeah, we will transcend the insignificance of our existence
Yeah, your body's gone, but angel, you will live

Yeah your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone

Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone
Now your body's gone but angel you will live
