Skin and Bones - Cage the Elephant

I closed my eyes and drift above the silence
Barely see the ultraviolent
Slipped and fell into the deep end

Oh, the sidewalk shimmer just like diamonds
All the empty words were flying
Well, the heart was low but I never was alone
I never was alone

I've been running for so long
All that's left is skin and bones
Close my eyes and fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall I'll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love light guide me home
Let the love light guide me home

Once the days evolve into another
I'm not getting any further
Left you feeling like a maniac

Oh, the sidewalk it was shining
All the empty words were flying
Well the heart was low but I never was alone
I never was alone

I've been running for so long
All that's left is skin and bones
Close my eyes, fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall I'll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love light guide me home
Let the love light guide me home

Tell me
Tell me
Help me
To see
Why so
Many
People
People
Crying
Dying
Killing
Fighting
My thoughts are empty almost all the time
And the light devising ways to lead the line
And time to sing is over, there's no end in sight

I don't wanna be there when it all goes down
But if I gotta be there don't let me hit the ground
Can I hit the ground?

I've been running for so long
All that's left is skin and bones
Close my eyes, and fight to carry on
Sometimes it makes no sense at all
If I stumble, will I fall?
If I fall I'll tuck and roll
Close my eyes and let the love light guide me home
Let the love light guide me home
And let the love light guide me home
