Lyrics

Fiendish wonder in a carnival's wake,
Dull caresses once again irritate.
Tread softly, stranger,
Move over toward the danger that you seek.
You think excitement has receded then the mirror distracts,
The logic of the trends quickly reaches and grasps.
Handsome and faceless,
And weightless, your imagination runs.

And now it's no one's fault but yours
At the foot of the house of cards.
You thought you'd never get obsessed,
You thought the wolves would be impressed.
And you're a sinking stone,
But you know what it's like to hold the jeweller's hands,
That procession of pioneers
All drown.

In the moonlight they're more thrilling,
Those things that he knows.
As he leads you through the grinning,
Bubble blowers in the snow.
Watching his exit
Is like falling off the ferry in the night.
The inevitable's gather to push you around,
Any other voice makes such a punishing sound,
He became laughter's assassin
Shortly after he showed you what it was.

And now it's no one's fault but yours
At the foot of the house of cards.
You thought you'd never get obsessed,
You thought the wolves would be impressed.
And you're a sinking stone,
But you know what it's like to hold the jeweller's hands,
That procession of pioneers
All drown.

If you've a lesson to teach me,
I'm listening, ready to learn.
There's no one here to police me,
I'm sinking in until you return.
If you've a lesson to teach me,
Don't deviate, don't be afraid.
Without the last corner piece I can't calibrate,
Let's get it ingrained.

If you've a lesson to teach me,
I'm listening, ready to learn.
There's no one here to police me,
I'm sinking in until you return.
If you've a lesson to teach me,
Don't deviate, don't be afraid.
Without the last corner piece I can't calibrate,
Let's get it ingrained.

If you've a lesson to teach me,
I'm listening, ready to learn.
There's no one here to police me,
I'm sinking in until you return.
If you've a lesson to teach me,
Don't deviate, don't be afraid.
Without the last corner piece I can't calibrate,
Let's get it ingrained.
