lyrics

Late, we dance the mephisto waltz
More or less it's not our fault
Such romance and elegance,
And mirrors off the wall

Brilliant co-dependence day,
More or less the same old way
Smart enough to know what silence means,
She offers not a word to say

Validation from an invalid
Works till you're crippled on the stares she hid
Forge on with the forgery
Down the slippery slope we slid

Never tires of telling her story until the end
So beautiful it's pitiful,
The tidal waves are in her head

Never tires of telling her story until the end
So beautiful it's pitiful,
The tidal waves are in her head
