The Pedestal

lyrics

how do we solve the riddle
of eliminating our old haunts
maybe I'll starve myself a little
and then I will look the way that I want
everybody wants to be whole again
but I think that I know better
there's a circle in the sand where the sinners stand
and now I'm floating without a tether

behold the mirrored mantle
when I look it isn't me I see
they glide across the marble floors
weightless on their polished feet
I've got a silver spoon, oh
but I can feel it choking me
somehow I know I still want more
I've been feeling incomplete

from high up on a pedestal
falsifying all this grace
there's someone underneath it all
I refuse to recognize her face
I've seen theses eyes somewhere before
they look at me most every day
in that hallowed mirrored mantle
I know not what I say
