Anyway, that's what life is, just one learning experience after another, and when you're through with all the learning experiences you graduate and what you get for a diploma is, you die.


I contemplate the half lives of friendship and lost love
That decay at a rate that’s steady and slow but is always enough
To see them all as fossils, as skeletons and ghosts
You can squint your eyes but you’ll see through most

Things aren’t getting better
They’re the same as ever
The more things change the more we never do

We can talk in circles, we can snap like turtles
Wave your finger in my face, see what I do
You could be my fossil, you could be my ghost
Don’t have to squint your eyes or look real close

I contemplate the half lives on all that we've been through
What we give, what we get, what I could never get from you
I'll turn you all to fossils, turn you all to ghosts
Don’t have to squint your eyes or look real close
