The gravity here is just sick for revenge It's like my lungs are filled with chains . . . The sky seems so low, It hasn't moved this slow Since the virgins, since the virgins went dancing for the rain
You know the stars in the night They're like the holes in the cave Like the ceiling of a bombed-out church But gravity blocks my screams It's like an enemy's dreams My guardians quit They quit before they started their search
Refrain: I want a world without gravity It could be just what I need I'd watch the stars move close I'd watch the earth recede
I wanna drift above the borders against my will I wanna sleep where the angels don't pass But now my lips are blue Gravity does it to you It's like they're pressed against a mirrored glass
I want my will and capability to meet inside the region Where this gravity don't mean a thing It's where the angels break through . . . It's where they bring it to you It's where silence, silence can teach me to sing
Repeat Refrain 2 times
I wanna lay beneath these sheets and never turn blue I wanna hold you, hold you tight but never touch I want some pure, pure white; hey, we can nod all night We can do it without thinking too much
I want the dilettantes and parvenues to choke on my wrists They think the pearls I wear are pills I want their gravity to shatter . . . but it really doesn't matter I got something in my eye that kills!
