  • Well, the future spills its intangibles
    An unknown set of variables
    A path that spliten infinitely up ahead
    So tell me what's the use to pick and choose
    From what you should or shouldn't do?
    That's time spent better sleeping in your bed
    Or wide awake in a shopping mall, trying clothes on from off of the wall
    Yeah, anything to entertain yourself
    'Cause a costume can be comfortable
    It can make you feel more beautiful
    It can even make you look like someone else
    But it's still you, so there's nothing you can do
    Like a bad habit, the one you couldn't kick, there it always is
    And it's nothing that no doctor's gonna fix

    They pat your back bruised with their accolades
    And all four walls are a trophy case
    But that doesn't make it any less of a cage
    But you can make it all less difficult
    By embracing the ephemeral
    Then you'd never have to worry or explain
    'Cause if it's really all just physical, then my memory's immaterial
    So why then do I remember you at all?
    But I do, I do, my friend, I seen your face
    We shared a cup, I know the taste
    Its sweetness is relentless on my lips
    So help me drink in everything that is
    Like a freed convict, drunk on redemption
    From the way I've been
    But I swear this time, that things will be different

    Well, right and wrong, they have never been that far apart
    For those who'd write that sentence where you hang
    We will be lifted up from all of this
    Yeah, we will transcend the insignificance of our existence
    Yeah, your body's gone, but angel, you will live

    Yeah your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone

    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone

    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone
    Now your body's gone but angel you will live
