    We believe there's something here worth dying for
    The uniforms are old but we'll still try some more

    I'd probably be wrong if I was right

    The breeze it sees from all considerations
    Turmoil stands like old rubber bands unbreaking
    and anything worth mentioning need not be too polite
    We won't mind...

    I've seen, much bigger more than me
    Your will be done, I'm not the only one

    This task, it seems a backward path
    When things are said in contexts
    big enough to wrap in boxes

    The things we say aren't easy to replace
    Be brief if you're unsure, that's much braver than before

    So what's your point?
    Who's the next you will anoint?
    There's nowhere to transcend to
    If we've got no ears to lend you

    I hate to say it
    You're no replacement
    Excuse you cannot buy

    It seems so aimless
    Too short and painless
    The truth you cannot hide

    The trouble measures
    For something better
    There's one more word to try

    I hate to say it
    You're no replacement
    I'm never good at lies, never good with liars
    Never good with lies, never good with lies

    Had you thought about it?
    Could you live without it?
    Cause it's all about you in the end

    And it's so elaborate (and it's all around you)
    But you've never had it (but you're turned around aren't you?)
    And you cannot grab it if you try
