LyricsEdit

To be an emotion actor, two broken strings attract her
A groom, a face, a life-filled room
Hesitate to throw a coin in, my wish could be a bad thing
My mouth is just a mesh of drool


I'm standing on a bridge, I won't get hit from this high up
A talking fish comes as she moves
I want to be like water, and never need a doctor,
And carve the earth without my tools
(Tool!)


All of the things that I relate to well, like authors and painters
Transparent paper dreams that float above me while I sleep
To make the room more natural
To think I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying


The color after sunset, you'd do anything the drink's at
The crush has come just like a willow
He doesn't need a house, there's shoes in every house
There's the drips, the black spots on my pillow


I want to be like water and slip in through your throat and
Make you feel alive and good
I want to be like water and never have a doubt
And reflect what is around my pool
(Tool!)


All the things that I relate to well, like authors and painters
Transparent paper dreams that float above me while I sleep
To make the room more natural
To think I'm dying, I'm dying, I'm dying


And all the dreams that I awake to read like ghostly paintings
And all the things I hate, I wish I didn't have to hate
To find a room that's natural
To live on by in 'em, by in 'em, by


I don't think you know just what you're doing
You pretend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving
Said, I don't think I know exactly what I'm doing
You pretend to know exactly all the things you keep on moving


When you wake up from your snoozin'
I can tell you're looking my way
Gonna tell you what I'm doin'
Raise a knife up in my drum


Anybody's dog is barking
And I got no a way to stop it
It's a song about the days you spend
Without me at our home
