lyrics

Pulled by the trance of the river’s deceit
Your eyes are wide open when you crash on the rocks
And in a glimpse of your reflection you wake from a dream
To a place where time never stops
To a place where time never stops

The comedian has the power to laugh at himself
To bust his own gut till all dignity is lost
And the audience just fell silent as he crawled off the stage
And he just died there while everyone watched
He just died there while everyone watched

Riding the contour of the meaning within
But the story of your life is much bigger than yourself
With each rude awakening it crawls through your skin
And jumps off like a book on a shelf
It jumps off like a book on a shelf

These dominoes are stacked and set neat in a row
Like the vanishing point to a cemetery street
The name of this game is to be overthrown
A direct route to your ultimate defeat
A direct route to your ultimate defeat

These generous portions have made me grow ill
And I’ve worn out my welcome to a belligerent plea
That hopes that you want to invite me to stay
When there’s nothing left to do but to leave
When there’s nothing left to do but to leave
When there’s nothing left to do but to leave
