You’ve been gathering sweet chocolate buttons
Saving them up for a joke
You’ve been hoarding them under your pillow
In a wine bottle, empty and broke

You can smile with the liars and losers
Whether you find it funny or not
You can laugh at the blind and the broken
With all of the colours you’ve got
So you drop this candy coated rage
Through the neck of the bottle

It’s a short way to fall, to the top

I caught you counting the hurt in the sunshine
Look how the colours they sing
It’s hard not to hide them
To revel in selfness
When hurt is a beautiful thing
So you drop this candy coated rage
Through the neck of the bottle

It’s a short way to fall, to the top

You can laugh at the hapless and hopeless
Look how you’re laughing at me
I’ve been dying to shatter your bottle

And it’s a short way to fall
It’s a short way to fall to the top
