lyrics

The fallacy of youth is thinking that you choose,
That everything you own right now you will never lose
You will lose it all, every hair and every tooth
Just as you don't belong to them, they do not belong to you.
All order will subside in an avalanche of shoes,
Not everything you know right now will always be the truth.
You'll be lost again without a compass in the woods
If you don't belong to them, how could they belong to you?

Don't be surprised that I am able to perpetuate a lie
'Cause I'm happily disabled by the sun that shines inside.
While I'm the hardiest of cynics, I know I'm lucky I'm alive
'Cause I remember nights by the knives,
I remember nights by the knives.

Ashes line the drives and burned down are the lives
But you can't lose what you don't have so I guess that you'll survive.
You alone aren't lost and you still have your lot
For if you don't belong to them, they are easily forgotten.

Don't be surprised that I am able to perpetuate a lie
'Cause I'm happily disabled by the sun that shines inside.
While I'm the hardiest of cynics, I know I'm lucky I'm alive
'Cause I remember nights by the knives,
I remember nights by the knives.
Don't be surprised that I am able to perpetuate a lie
'Cause I'm happily disabled by the sun that shines inside.
While I'm the hardiest of cynics, I know I'm lucky I'm alive
'Cause I remember nights by the knives,
I remember nights by the knives.
