lyrics

I've wasted so much time
Staring into stranger's eyes
Mapping out diagrams
For how to live a life
I've talked about things
I didn't understand
I've dressed the parts to hold
Another's hands
In dreams I've been napkins
Folded into swans
In life I've been a thread
Shaking in the wind

And all I've ever really learned is
If you don't bend you'll break
And having all the grace is fine
But it still won't get you saved

Rehearsing new bodies
In silent afternoons
In the emptiness
Of anonymous rooms
Just to forget I even had a name
You are doing it to forget my name
To be nowhere in your thoughts again
(To be honest, I'm doing just the same)

And all I've ever really learned is
If you don't bend you'll break
And having all the grace is fine
But it still won't get you saved
