lyrics

Beat the drum, paint my face on it
If you think that's going to help
Thicker skin won't grow upon it
Crack my head like an eggshell
I'm defeated by weakness
When you ring me like a bell
Now older, clear my shoulder
Now I'm over, wish me well.

The rhythm was wrong all along, all along
The rhythm was wrong all along.

Be a drum, some guilty martyr
Resonating dead regrets
Flickering conscience interrupts you
Your apologist's etiquette
Repeatedly I've asked forgiveness
Upon deaf ears I always fell
Now we're older, let's get over
No more cold now, no more hell

The rhythm was wrong all along, all along
The rhythm was wrong all along
The rhythm was wrong all along, all along
The rhythm was wrong all along.

Throw your hand violently now to my face
Hold no words silently now, let them escape
Throw your hand violently now to my face
Hold no words silently now, let them escape.

The rhythm was wrong
It stilted the song
The time slipped and stop
The beat didn't belong
The rhythm was wrong all along, all along

Throw your hand violently now to my face
Hold no words silently now, let them escape
Throw your hand violently now to my face
Hold no words silently now, let them escape.

The rhythm was wrong all along.
