Smoke is rising from the houses
People bury in the day
I ask somebody what the time is
But time doesn't matter to them yet

People talking without speaking
Trying to take what they can't get
I ask you if you remember
Prospekt how could I forget

Drums, here it comes
Don't you wish your life could be as simple
As fishes swimming 'round in a barrel when you've got the gun
Oh and I run
Here it comes

We're just two little figures in a soup bowl
Trying to get behind a kind of control
But I wasn't one

But here I lie on my own in a separate sky
And here I lie on my own in a separate sky
I don't wanna die on my own here tonight
And here I lie on my own in a separate sky

    Here's the correct lyrics to the whole song:

    Smoke is rising from the houses
    People burying their dead
    I asked somebody what the time is
    But time doesn’t matter to them yet

    People talking without speaking
    Trying to take what they can get
    I ask you if you remember
    Prospekt how could I forget?

    Drums, here it comes
    Don’t you wish that life could be as simple
    As fish swimming ‘round in a barrel
    When you’ve got the gun

    Oh when I run
    Here it comes

    We're just two little figures in a soup bowl
    Trying to get behind a kind of control
    But I wasn't one

    But here I lie on my own in a separate sky
    And here I lie on my own in a separate sky
    I don't want to die on my own here tonight
    Oh here I lie on my own in a separate sky
