lyrics

Verse:
We’ll give you a name
It’s yours until it breaks
Might still call you glass behind your back but to your face
We’ll pretend we’re brave even though we’re scared like you
What’s the use in breaking out this far from home?

[Tell me all your secrets ‘ so I can give them names]

Porcelain has made complexions hard to keep ‘
Scarred beneath the eggshell ‘ we make sweet make believe until the day swells ‘
Casts its own shadow in the fallen ash
Burns away a thousand yesterdays to try and make it last

What a nasty little place to hide?
For such a lonely little alibi

Chorus:
They think that I think too much about the suffering
There’s some disease inside my brain

They think that I think too much about the suffering
I just think they think too much about their property
There’s some disease inside my brain

Chorus 2:
They think that I think too much about the suffering
There’s some disease inside my brain

They think that I think too much about the suffering
I just think they think too much about their property
There’s some disease inside my brain

Why set up your tent on the dark side of that cage?
Your apathy ‘ is just a fence ‘ for that disease inside your brain

Outro:
All that gold dust inside those caves is worth more with a name
Am I the same?
Am I the same?

All those thoughts inside those brains are worth more with a name
Am I the same?
Or am I not?
Am I the same?
Or am I not?
