Electric President – Ether lyrics

While you slept it off
Your empire was lost
Now we're not your sons
Your old silver tongue
It don't work too well now

We wandered off
With our heads nice and soft
But we were still numb
And we burned in the sun
And got torn to pieces

I walked across from eyes
And scratched my name into the sky
The things beneath my floorboards fly
I'll never let them out
And all my teeth are down at my feet
And all of the blood comes in a flood
Start counting sheep

Then I fall asleep again
And by myself I'm wondering
A forest made of skeletons
Of people I once knew
And all their spines are perfectly aligned
Like cold power lines

My feet left the ground
And I floated off and got lost
Now this ain't my home
There's no warmth in these bones
Just a mock up to help me pretend I'm sleeping

While we slept it off
All the money was lost
Now we can't stand up
Yeah, the blood in our guts
It just weighs us down now
We'll crawl along
Despite what goes wrong
'Cause we're not that young
Takes more than your guns to scare us off now

My feet left the ground
And I floated off and got lost
Now my house is far below
It's buried in snow
And I can't see my footprints anymore; they're too small
I drift through the clouds with my heart in my mouth
I'm not stopping
Now the Earth is far behind
I'm lost in the sky with my eyes closed
I'm just waiting for my air to run out
