lyrics

We are cursed with consciousness
The universe wants us to believe
In the significance of all that we conceive

Wondering why, why we are
Haunted by the life we’ve never found
And the demons living in our parents’ house

Sometimes I feel like someone else
Like a body on the couch
Like a face without a mouth

And when I feel like someone else
I get to thinking

What is this life we lead and
What does it mean?
I did not choose to be here
And I will not choose to leave
When I leave

Everything will slip away
Dampening the pleasure and the pain
Like the pitter-patter of the falling rain

One thing I can guarantee
Kids will cry and parents disagree
Oh, the fundamental selfishness of being

Sometimes I feel like someone else
Like a body on the couch
Like a face without a mouth

And when I feel like someone else
I get to thinking

What is this life we lead and
What does it mean?
I did not choose to be here
And I will not choose to leave
When I leave

What is this life?
What does it mean?
What is this life?
What does it mean?
I did not choose to be here
And I will not choose to leave
When I leave
