[BRIDGE] 4-measure bass solo Here's the lyrics: [INTRO] [w/ VERSE] I move across, innocence lost all flashing pulsar I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt I pass satellites. "You're so bitter," your complaint I can't give you anything I don't know who you're livin' for I don't who you are anymore. [PRE-CHORUS] I'd sooner chew my leg off, Than be trapped in this. How easy do you think of all of this as bittersweet me [CHORUS] I couldn't taste it I'm tired and naked I don't know what I'm hungry for I don't know what I want anymore. [w/ VERSE] I move across, candy floss I move like a tank I move across the room with a heart full of gloom, stronger than you think Oh my peer, your veneer is wearing thin and cracking. the surface informs that underneath, underneath is lacking. [PRE-CHORUS] [CHORUS] [BRIDGE] [w/ VERSE] You move across, innocence lost, all static and desire, you're blue in the face from navel gaze, you set yourself on fire. You strip down and lay yourself out, I know you can't fake it, But are you tire and naked? Are you tire and naked? [PRE-CHORUS] [CHORUS] [CHORUS]
