The Lonely

Since I found out that all of this
Is nothing more than an emptiness
Filled with impermanence

A guided tour of your deepest fears
Designed to help you vision clear
We'll depart from here

Oh and the strangest feeling drifted over me
Oh we'll begin where you give in now baby dear
Art thou so misunderstood?

I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my Casio electric piano
'Til in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars

Just like Liberace
I will return to haunt you with peculiar piano riffs

So take it back, back to the start
Rip out your lily-livered hearts
And hand them over in a vacuum-sealed jar

I say, I will not take half a risk
I will not walk half deceased
I believe bravery exists

And the strangest feeling drifted over me
Art thou so misunderstood?

I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my Casio electric piano
'Til in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars

I'll drink all day and play by night
Upon my Casio electric piano
'Til in the darkness I see lights
But not candelabra
But things from other stars
Things from other stars
Things from other stars
