I've known faces
That have disappeared in time
Find me wrapped in glass
And slowly soaked in lime

All my friends have pictures
Made to make you cry
I've seen this and wondered
What I've done to calcify

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
And now I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

I can't stand to see
Your thalidomide robot face
I don't even try it, you had to be a liar
Just to infiltrate me, I'm still drowning

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

Take this away
Take this away

I can feel you in my mouth
I can taste you on my fingers
I can hear you like the holy ghost
And kill you if you get too close

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind
We let it all slip away

We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
