lyrics

You sailed a ship on frozen tears, drifted into a bottle
Failed your grip on good ideas, misstepped into a pothole
Braille on wrist from a brake severe, lifted over your handles
Daily fits of shaken spears, shifts of being a shambles.

Something out of... something out of... something out of nothing at all
The story of... the story of your life
(The story of your life is the story of most lives)
Nothing out of... nothing out of... nothing of anything at all
The story of... the story of most lives.

Your ceiling drips existential fear, a pot of God to end your rainbow
Your halo slipped into your beer, rose to the top as a bubble
People that you knew aren't here, a map of time now lines your eyeball
Stealing seconds but losing years, the wave you ride is turning tidal.

Something out of... something out of... something out of nothing at all
The story of... the story of your life
(The story of your life is the story of most lives)
Nothing out of... nothing out of... nothing of anything at all
The story of... the story of most lives.
