You said your heart was like this stone sheered from a ledge, "Nice and sharp, and so delicate." Then you did begin to cut into our fingers. "Now we will be brothers, you and me. We always will be brothers." I held it up into the light to see the edge glowing white and dripping crimson red. Reflecting in the water, in shone like a diamond. And I threw it in the river. That's what I want is to throw it in the river. I threw your heart like a stone into the water. I thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife. We watched it sail through the night like a moon And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared. I watched your eyes well up with fear at the sound of the reflection lapping all around. "Don't be afraid, we'll go and find another. There'll always be another. That's what they say is there'll always be another. You ran your hand across the stone, it felt so smooth, not too sharp and then you did remove a piece that was so perfect it shone like a diamond. Then you threw it in the river. I don't know why, but you threw it in the river. You threw your heart like a stone into the water. You thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife. We watched it sail through the night like a moon And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared.

Give em what they want Give em all they'll ever need Pile all the carvings on the flame Give em some lies Go ahead and sing for them Just get em across that great highway You wanna come? I'll be around for you Just keep your eyes on the concrete sky. Give em what they want okay Give em what the want okay We want some colors And we want some imagery We want to not want anything We want some birds to cover up the concrete sky And fly away with all our words. Give em what they want okay Give em what the want okay Give em what they want Give em all they'll ever need Pile all the carvings on the flame Give em some lies Go ahead and sing for them Just get em across that great highway. Give em what they want okay Give em what the want okay
