lyrics

Watching the world away,
Watching the world away,
Watching the world, you're watching.

These four chords I'm strumming,
And floor board are tumbling,
Beneath our feet,
Beneath our rickety existence.

And the bookshelf is broken,
And it's really just a token,
Of a life worth living,
With honest resistance.

But you'll never get it because your life is perfect,
And you'll never get it because your wife is perfect,
And your life is perfect, and so is your home,
And it's all covered up, therefore it's gone.

It's covered up and it's gone x 4

I head out to my job, it's a fifteen minute walk,
And you drive by, you're late for work again.
And my wallpaper, it is torn, there's only one hinge on my door,
You look to me; you want me to explain.

But you'll never get it because your life is perfect,
And you'll never get it because your wife is perfect,
And your life is perfect, and so is your home,
And it's all covered up, therefore it's gone.

It's covered up and it's gone x 4

And you won't know, no you won't know, no you won't know, when it comes!
No you won't know, no you won't know, no you wont' know, when it comes!
Perfect; just like your life.
Perfect; just like your wife.
Perfect; just like your home.
Covered up therefore it's gone.

Covered up and it's gone, it's covered up and it's gone, it's covered up and it's gone. It's covered up and it's gone.

And you're Watching the world away, watching the world away, watching the world away, watching the world away.

Perfect; just like your life.
Perfect; just like your wife.
Perfect; just like your home.
Covered up therefore it's gone.
