lyrics

What are we but skin and bones?
I'll dig in claws, leave me alone.
What are we but blood and flesh?
I'll find a home, so place your bets.
Who are we but souls in shells?
I'm seeing stars, I'm hearing bells.
Who are we but mannequins?
If this is it, where do I begin?
Where do I fit in?

And I should have known that you'd bury your claws in my bones
This house is not a home
I'll cover your wings in the snow, I'll cover your wings in the snow.

What are we but grown up dolls?
Fitting in and holding roles?
What are we but energy?
Keep moving on machinery.
Who are we but a voice and mouth?
So scream it loud, and say it proud.
Who are we but nurtured brains?
Anti-natural but nature made.

What are we but skin and bones?
I'll dig in claws, leave me alone.
What are we but blood and flesh?
I'll find a home, so place your bets.
Who are we but souls in shells?
I'm seeing stars, I'm hearing bells.
Who are we but mannequins?
If this is it, where do I begin?
Where do I fit in?
