Perfect Symmetry

I shake through the wreckage for signs of life
Scrolling through the paragraphs
Clicking through the photographs
(I wish I could make sense of what we do
Burning down the capitals
The wisest of the animals)

Who are you?
What are you living for?
Tooth for tooth
Maybe we'll go one more

This life is lived in perfect symmetry
What I do
That will be done to me


Read page after page of analysis
Looking for the final score
We're no closer than we were before

Who are you?
What are you fighting for?
Holy truth?
Brother I choose

This mortal life, lived in perfect symmetry
What I do
That will be done to me
As the needle slips into the run-out groove
Love
Maybe you'll feel it too


And maybe you'll find life is unkind
And over so soon
There is no golden gate
There is no heaven waiting for you

Oh boy, you oughta leave this town
Get out while you can
The meter's running down
The voices in the streets you love
Everything is better when you hear that sound
Oh woah!
Oh oah!
Woah!


Spineless dreamers
(Hide in churches
Pieces of, pieces of
Rush hour buses
I dream in e-mails)
Worn-out phrases
Mile after mile of just
Empty pages

Wrap yourself around me
Wrap yourself around me


As the needle slips into the run-out groove
Maybe you'll feel it too
Maybe you'll feel it too

Spineless dreamers - Maybe you'll feel it too
Hide in churches - Maybe you'll feel it too
Pieces of, pieces of
Rush hour buses
(I dream in e-mails
Worn-out phrases
Mile after mile of just
Empty pages)
