lyrics

what is this terrible distance?
only yesterday i saw myself in your eyes
now i only see dollar signs
euros
ones and zeros

what is this terrible distance?
only yesterday
i was your favorite band
am i today singing in tongues you don't understand?

life is grand when you know who are
life is grand when you know who are

and when you know that the stars are
impossibly far away
impossibly far away

after the boom
ash trees and asters in bloom
and the party balloons
rocket up to the ceiling
we don't seem to feel anything

the moon is in flames
and our names are unfinished
we see almost everything
but we don't seem to feel anything

we see everyone
but we don't seem to know anyone.

we see everyone
but we don't seem to know anyone.
