The Axe That Chopped The Cherry Tree – Sandcastle On Glass Shores lyrics

[All hail the transition from sand to glass]
[Experiment with makeup
Experiment with hair
Experiment with love
It's all in what you wear.]

Nowadays, it's all about what kind of makeup you wear
And nowadays, it's all about what kind of product is in your hair
But, who's to say you're not just in despair?

So, who's to say you're more than just a pretty face?
I hate to break it to you babe, but life's got more of a race
So, who's to say you're not just a pretty face?
It's not enough
[Glass, sand, don't die]

Nowadays it's either you're drowning the world, or living underwater
And nowadays, it's either, your face grows peel by peel, or you live in exile ear to ear

Let's see tht eyeliner when it's running down your face
Let's see that makeup when it's all that you have left
It's time you see that these things won't last
This is the transition from sand to glass
