Well this stone that i have swallowed
isn't going down so well
and this road that i have followed
is leading me to hell
and you said it didn't matter
but i think you're a liar
is this one of your talents

the stokes the very fire it burns you
each time you try to live
and the earth will turn below you
the pressure is building
till something has to give

Verse 2:
And when i build you a steeple
you say it's incomplete
'cause you need the whole cathedral
to satisfy the need
you're like a paper aeroplane
that never seems to land
flying blind through anything
straight into the hand that chokes you
each time you try to live...
(repeat)
Something has to give
something has to give
something has to give...
