In late July, we proposed an addition
Without hesitation, the architect answered our call
In not much time, he'd made his commission
But this brave new world would imprison us all

Imprison us all, imprison us all, imprison us all

I'm trying not to make such a habit
Of occupying thought with all the things that I can't control
But as time moved on, it became more elaborate
And we all lost sight of the things that it stole

The things that it stole, the things that it stole, the things that it stole

We're wasting our time being all of the things that we're not
And it's taken too long to arrive at this logical thought
That our skulls form the walls to the cages in which we hide
Though we see through our lashes the light of the outside

It's not our fault, it's not our fault, now

It was then we knew the architect's burden
Accepting the fate of the foolish who sit in their cells
With boxes packed, he made for the shoreline
And without hesitation, turned a blind eye and bid us farewell

He bid us farewell, he bid us farewell, he bid us farewell
