Rick and wealthy canvas
Finding all your heavyweights

Broken all your paper plates
Crusted in gold
Heavy and hollow
Find us here
Heavy and humble
Find us here

In nations built on sand
Things got outta hand
Polystyrene skylines
Rusted and bruised

Look at the shape we're in
Paper thin
Look at the shape we're in
Paper thin, paper thin, paper thin...
Stars scrape the moon
We stand beneath

And the moon scrapes the sky
Wondering why, wondering why
Paper buys the men
The bomb that makes this world

Gentle as a drum
Paper thin!
Life is but a fragile thing
An accolade bestowed on us

The skull beneath the skin
Paper thin!
Bury your destruction
The barriers between us, make 'em all
Paper thin! Paper thin!
Underneath the paper moon
Torn into a thousand shreds

Clustered up in jewels
Are featherweights and fools
In origami cities
Love got bent right outta shape

Paper thin. Paper thin
