lyrics

Static at Curtain Call

My inside
Has been retired;
I’m still
Under construction.

But you know what they say,
A hollow vessel makes the most sound.
These words of a semblance
Rattle around and come tumbling out,

Only twice as loud,
And without any meaning;
A stifled cadence,
Of thought, and it’s lost.

‘Cause I’m losing
Any feeling at all;
Flying into small storms
Then folding and falling.

Like static
At curtain call.

But you know what they say,
A hollow vessel makes the most sound.
These words of a semblance
Rattle around and come tumbling out.

Like static
At curtain call.
