There's a bottomless pit that we've been climbing from
Just to get on level ground
Shake your seasick legs around
Dead of winter in a logo town
Signs of life are soft and flickering

Need a bed to lay my body down
Dead weight to carry down
Some static is lulling me to sleep

Hang your clothes on a chain link fence
In a junkyard say Amen
Your mouth is full of wordless hymns
And run on sentences

And they're helpless and forgetting
In the background holding nothing
And they're youthless and pretending
With their bare hands, holding nothing

There's a million horses dragging down a monolith
With these trademarks so bereaved
Tied my leg to a barricade
With a plastic hand grenade
They tried to turn emotion into noise

Need a teleprompter for my life
Need a pipeline to the night
My body can't get no relief

And this life, it goes by fast
You're treading water in the past
Trying to re-animate something
That you can't understand

And they're helpless and forgetting
In the background saying nothing
And he's youthless and forgetting
With his bare hands, touching nothing

And he's helpless and forgetting
In the background saying nothing
And he's youthless and pretending
With his bare hands, holding nothing
