I am the stone that you skip across the surface of the water
Counting all of the ripples that I make
And you are the water that I sink into with every breath I take
Falling deeper in each shallow promise you make

I've walked through all the countries that you told me to go to
Fed a starving mouth or two along the way
I've kneeled with preachers who told me they could save my soul
But I'm not sure that I have a soul to save

All my stupid lies got me in this place
I am a ghost of someone I'm not even sure ever existed
I'm so full of shit sometimes, it's all that I can taste
All I know is that the memory of your eyes
Burned a hole in my brain

Money is medication for my broken dream
I put it in my nose, stick it in my arm
And I fly away to a land where nothing means a thing
Where the birds don't sing
Where the birds don't sing

Put your eye against the glass, what is it that you see
A bunch of shapes and patterns reminding you
Of places you'd rather be
So tired of being a painting that you made when you were ten
Sitting on your dresser somewhere in your mind
A two dimensional being
