Yesterday was a million years ago In all my past lives I've played an asshole Now I found you, it's almost too late And this earth seems obliviating We are trembling in our crutches High and dead our skin is glass I'm so empty here without you I crack my xerox hands I know it's the last day on earth We'll be together while the planet dies I know it's the last day on earth We'll never say goodbye The dogs slaughter each other softly Love burns its casualties We are damaged provider modules Spill the seeds at our children's feet I'm so empty here without you I know they want me dead I know it's the last day on earth We'll be together while the planet dies I know it's the last day on earth We'll never say goodbye
