Lyrics


Empty souls will leave their homes
To find a place where they're alone
Rattling memories and hollow bones
Leaves a taste so bitter and cold

For empty souls will stand alone
Shivering like black-eyed dogs
Waiting to be taken home
Where that is they only know

Exposed to a truth we don't know
Collapsing like the Twin Towers
Falling down like April showers
Colossal endless like a marathon
God knows what makes the comparison
God knows what makes the comparison

For the empty souls
For the empty souls

For empty souls they stand alone
Shivering like black-eyed dogs
Waiting to be taken home
Where that is they only know

Exposed to a truth we don't know
Collapsing like the Twin Towers
Falling down like April showers
Colossal endless like a marathon
God knows what makes the comparison
God knows what makes the comparison

For the empty souls
For the empty souls

Colossal endless like a marathon
God knows what makes the comparison
God knows what makes the comparison

For the empty souls
For the empty souls

Notes


Lyrics of the chorus changed to "Collapsing like dying flowers" for single edit
