lyrics

You’re cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up
With your brutal suffocating ways
Like cellophane
Spreading yourself too thin
To begin to feel anything

Oh all the fear, all the lies
What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in, over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
Heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming, over and over the same thing

(Alibis alibis)

Like alibis
Smiling like a sunbeam
Furious as creeping fire and grazing ice
And your alibis
Tongue-tied smoke and mirrors
Left stuttering in bleach and lights

(Cellophane)

Oh all the fear all the lies
What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
Heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming over and over the same thing

Did you find that you’re lost?
Oh let us fall down through the cracks in the pavement
If you find that you’re lost
Nothing, nothing is safer
Did you find that you’re lost?
The cracks are the same whether sidewalk or pavement
Who’s keeping score?
Nothing is sacred, nothing is sacred

You’re like cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up with your brutal suffocating ways

Oh all the fear all the lies
What you think you need to survive
The crisis is moving in over and over the same thing
From X to Y to Z comply
The heartache barely keeps you alive
The crisis is coming over and over the same thing

You’re like cellophane
You think that you got it wrapped up with your brutal suffocating ways
