Cardboard City

My skin
is wearing thin
You’re not cut out
Nobody is since
The day
that was the day
When I heard you say
We won’t leave a trace

My eyes
are telling lies
Obsessive gazing
into false lights
You stray
from the ashtrays
’cause it won’t stay
We won’t leave a trace

The bricks are all eroded by the rain
And everything always stays the same
Can’t we go back
from whence we came?
You said we’d look better in frames

Your glare
cuts the air
No time to show for
Like you’re not there
The decay
takes it all away
We’re a brand new grey
We won’t leave a trace

The bricks are all eroded by the rain
And everything always stays the same
Can’t we go back
from whence we came?
You said we’d look better in frames

We won’t leave a trace
But it’s better this way
We don’t have to face
That our cardboard city has frayed

The bricks are all eroded by the rain
And everything always stays the same
Can’t we go back
from whence we came?
You said we’d look better in frames
