lyrics

I was tied to the rails by Calvary's cross,
defeated and deranged and left for dead.
I rose from the grave of the life that I'd left
defeated and deranged.

There were people standing on every corner in town,
and those who were hidden in the bushes.
Now the fire never ceases, the clouds never part
to reveal the sky at large.

I heard echoes in the hills of the ones who survived,
who wrote what they knew and stuck to it.
I hovered in a cave a philosopher drew
and spoke of Socrates.

That's how I do it.
There's nothing, there's nothing to it.

Between the air and the wall there is infinite space.
There is a limit that that can never be reached
going half of the distance from here to the door
for those who studied calculus.

That's how we do it,
there's nothing, there's nothing to it.
There's nothing, there's nothing to it

Merrily we roll along or hide in the woods.
Yea, verily we watch the shadows fall
until there’s nothing, nothing at all.
Nothing, nothing at all.
Outside the windows,
we watch the shadows crawl.

I heard echoes in the hills of the ones who survived,
who wrote what they knew and stuck to it.
I hovered in a cave a philosopher drew
and spoke of Socrates.

That's how I do it.
There's nothing, there's nothing to it.
