lyrics

this situation has no pulse
but we keep barking up this fallen tree
that old Hope returns us to
telling us it will be different or somehow new
but i’m on the scent of those two dead dogs
digging at their own bones
with their fingers crossed
they’ll only dig deep enough down
to feel their own heat through the hard ground

and you can’t get anything past me
(Archimedes eat your heart out)
‘cause you should know ‘cause blow by blow
i’ve tried to tell you so

but this situation has no pulse
still we keep barking up this fallen tree
that old Hope returns us to
telling us it will be different or somehow new
and you wouldn’t want to say
what you wouldn’t give
for a little less weight and a little more lift
but yeah you can split a hair
and make a big scene out of thin air

but you can’t get anything past me
(Archimedes eat your heart out)
‘cause you should know ‘cause blow by blow
i’ve tried to tell you so

i said:
there’s always a catch and the tighter you grip
to the time that you have the more
fingers it slips through

but that conversation had no pulse
so we took it out into the street to set it free
left to walk along the words and chose
to tell us something different or somehow new
but let off the lead it just slumped to the ground
so we dug each other up and stripped each other down
and found: exposed to my own bone
i can go so cold i turn to stone

and its like you can’t get anything past me
(Archimedes eat your heart out)
Archimedes
