lyrics

you know what they say,
i can't ever get out of my own way
and i know this
i know all about myself
i know myself too well

so i came down saturday, beside
the statue of a man who died
twice, when his name went quiet,
quiet
and i met her there
and i met her there
and i met her there,

and i asked the clockmaker how much it would break her
her cogs and bells and wooden ledges
her painted face and gilded edges
to turn back the dial
to turn back the dial for a while

i remember that night, she knows
i was drunk, i was wild, and i tried to overdose
on daily vitamins all pink and blue
get some bitter help from a sweet sweet capsule
and heal myself to death, heal myself to death,
heal myself to death, i couldn't even meet her eyes
but now that we're back here, i'm mesmerized
see the pendulum swinging, i'm hypnotized, oh

and i asked the clockmaker how much it would break her
her cogs and bells and wooden ledges
her painted face and gilded edges
to turn back the dial
to turn back the dial for a while

you know what they say
why can't she just breathe for one day?

and i know this
i know all about myself
i know myself too well

so i'm here to say - don't know if you'll agree -
i've come to see that nothing means nothing.
nothing means nothing,
so do anything you want to me
do whatever you want to me

and i asked the clockmaker how long it would take her
her cogs and bells and wooden ledges
her painted face and gilded edges
to turn back the dial
turn back the dial for a while
for a while
for a while
