How can they say that it’s one way
When it’s the opposite?
And how can they know the end
Of the story before I tell it?
‘Cause when I walk, your feet
They fall to the same beat
Or maybe we’re from two different worlds…
We used to be the epitome of mindless materialism
Taking apart brick and coin for a little inkling of fun
We talked away in circles, but never in infinity signs
But it didn’t last forever ‘cause we both wanted to die
For I never understood why you didn’t ever understand
Until we’re left with empty voices and mismatched hands
I translated it all wrong, you decoded nothing but misery
We spoke in undecipherable tongues, so now we’re history
Why did we waste such eloquent words on each other’s lies?
Breathing out sombre songs that never synced the beat right
Wrought desiccated eyes with apertures that flashed blindly
And we set out separate restrictions from the cold apologies
We turned back but never forward and we took a couple steps
Too far until we hit the brick walls, this was far beyond any help
How could we plead that it was one-way, intersections opposite
When the fault was a double-edged tongue talking about bullshit?
But behind this dead mess, I do admit I enjoyed all the endless chaos
Riding the hurricane with you, and making my own cyclone at a loss
I wish you the same, and let me say I hope you don’t regret and think
Don’t forget the secrets we shared when our native tongue goes extinct.
We talk to people
But they never understand
They think we’re crazy
‘Cause it sounds like noise to them
Ain’t it strange, all the things you hear
When you sit and listen?
