Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
I've got this thing that I consider my only art of f*****g people over.

My boss just quit the job
Says he's goin out to find blind spots and he'll do it.

The 3rd planet is sure that they're being watched
By an eye in the sky that can't be stopped.
When you get to the promise land
Your gonna shake that eyes hand.

Your heart felt good
It was drippin' pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees
Felt cold and wet on the grass to me.

Well, outside naked, shiverin' looking blue, from the cold
Sunlight that's reflected off the moon.
Baby c** angels fly around you
Reminding you we used to be three and not just two.
And that's how the world began.
And that's how the world will end.

Well, a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water
Didn't know then was it a son was it a daughter.
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic.

And how.

Well, the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth.

Your heart felt good
It was drippin' pitch and made of wood.
And your hands and knees
Felt cold and wet on the grass to me.

Well, outside naked, shiverin' looking blue, from the cold
Sunlight that's reflected off the moon.
Baby c** angels fly around you
Reminding you we used to be three and not just two.
And that's how the world began.
And that's how the world will end.

Well, a 3rd had just been made and we were swimming in the
Water
Didn't know then was it a son was it a daughter.
When it occurred to me that the animals are swimming
Around in the water in the oceans in our bodies
And another had been found another ocean on the planet
Given that our blood is just like the Atlantic.

And how.

Well, the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
And the universe is shaped exactly like the earth
If you go straight long enough you'll end up where you were.
The universe is shaped exactly like the earth.

Everything that keeps me together is falling apart
I've got this thing that I consider my only art of f*****g people over.
