lyrics

Skeleton, stand still for me
And rise up through the skyline
Pile of bones, please dance for me
and hold yourself upright hand over fist-

For we have got a congruence sometimes.
And we have got a signal sent across enemy lines,
yeah, we have got a congruence sometimes.

‘Cause culture’s a lie——
don’t hold back the curtain.
As the years go by——
our future is certain and only our structure remains.

Martial law, till a body is bended,
And skin, they could never exhume it.
Taphonomy, like Gorbachev intended,
I'm shouting it out.
I'm shouting to whom it-

Would be a form of it sometimes.
Though the outside world ignores it, you’re sure to realize.
And we have got a confluence sometimes.

Cross culture’s a lie——
don’t hold back the curtain.
As the decade goes by——
our future is certain and only our structure remains.

The fruit of knowledge bitten,
They tried to clothe you in advertisement.
your text is shallow, still mostly unwritten
on the money that you and I spent on your

beauty left and opulence sometimes.
For we all need some pulchritude across enemy lines
for we want to be beautiful too.
For we want to be as beautiful as you.
For we want to be as beautiful as all of you.

‘Cause culture’s a lie——
don’t hold back the curtain.
As the centuries go by——
our future is certain and still that damn structure remains.
