lyrics

I know you think you’re alone.
I know you think you’re alone!
Well I’ve got something to show you.
City of the old emporers,
they used to have a love for all letters.
There are 25 for english words,
but there’s nothing to say.
Everybody’s got a couple lines,
everyday they try to memorize.
They don’t know the reason or the rhyme,
but they like the sound.
Why are you so surprised?
Been this way 100 years.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
City of the lost emporers,
gotta build a wall to hold them in.
1000 years of little accidents,
can’t let them get out.
When you break them down
to little parts.
The shattered bony bits
of who they are.
They are start to look
a lot alike,
and a lot like you.
Please don’t be so surprised
this is just the way things are.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
If you go, you’ll be back.
Can’t escape your life’s path.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
Please don’t be so surprised
this is just the way things are.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
If you go, you’ll be back.
Can’t escape your life’s path.
Don’t you know
that you look funny
when you run away.
