There's a man on the corner selling dozens of bones
Every type of bone except the one that I want
Ever think what your eyes do you're trying to sleep
Or where your tongue rests, is it against your teeth

And now it's bigger than us
It's bigger than everything it decides to touch

Asleep is the safest place you could be
You can try hard to catch it, it just catches you
Imagine a camera coming up from your feet
Relax all your muscles son just hope your hearts in one piece

And now it's bigger than us
It's bigger than everything it decides to touch
It's bigger than a halo, a devil, an angel and a crow

The bones got the wrong detail I hoped it would have
Safe for a shin bone or even a hand

It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride
It's such a lonely ride

And now it's bigger than us
It's bigger than everything it decides to touch
The bones got the wrong detail I hoped it would have for you
Safe for a shin bone or even a hand

There's a man on the corner selling dozens of bones
Every type of bone except the one that I want.
