Lyrics

The lyrics to the song as performed on the album:

   Yes, everyone seems to be asleep
   
   Hey look, you didn't even notice
   You couldn't even tell
   Just when it started happening
   Maybe just as well
   After all, everything is getting unfamiliar now
   Trajectory in decline
   And we become obsolete
   A frame at a time
   
   I'm locked inside here
   I have to stay
   With people who aren't here
   All the way
   Pictures and faces
   On display
   Of people who aren't here
   All the way
   
   And you didn't even notice
   And you didn't even notice
   That you're missing
   
   Dear world, I can hardly recognize you anymore
   And yet I remain certain there is an answer in you
   I feel like I have lived so long
   Sometimes run out of things to try to do
   I can't concentrate
   What about…
   I begin to go through another that we have been
   I have been entirely patient
   No, no, not this time
   
   I am leaving because I can't recognize who I have been
   You go on spoiling
   It's happening
   Without me you didn't even notice
   Of course it's been happening all along
   Permanent intervals
   As you become obsolete
   Who are you?
   Oh, this place...
   I can't concentrate
   But I know I can't trust myself
   
   I'm locked inside here
   I have to stay
   With people who aren't here
   All the way
   Pictures and faces
   On display
   Of people who aren't here
   All the way
   
   Yes, everyone seems to be asleep
