Withered rope you hang what's empty can't remain to put it simply
In time cry the hollow words to sing with false disguise
Smothered hope fly from sorrow for a new divine tomorrow

I just don't want to know anymore

Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong
Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong
Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong

Why don't you care
Life shifts up and down
Now don't it seem unfair
Life shifts up and down

It's not in the rhyme or reason so it goes with every season
Crawl to top fall through bottom first hand love is really rotten
Slice of life find what's plenty inch towards a sanctuary
Fight with me inside the womb
I know everyone everybody knows it's me
It's my voice my voice cries out obscenity
Sightless I regard my past sometimes it should
I just don't want to know anymore

Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong
Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong
Life shifts up and down
Everybody knows it's wrong

Why don't you care
Life shifts up and down

Why don't you care
Why why don't you care
Smothered hope
Why don't you care


Smothered hope (repeat x 15)

If the world is a hell what does it matter what happens in it (repeat x 3)

Electric chair electric chair
