There must be something in the air.
There must be something in the way
It burns right to the bone.
We're walking skeletons in here
When just a minute's passed
Since we were fully fleshed
And breathing out.
Or was it just something you said?

We'd welcome in the wind
If we knew it wouldn't spread the flames
That you'd been spitting out.
So we smother them ourselves
And apologize for slights on you
While wringing out our necks.

It's always just something you said.
It's always just...

Something you shouldn't have but did anyway
When you find yourself on the ugly side
You'll light it up and cry innocent
When the world explodes
You're the only one left holding a match
Express regret
Just to set it up and knock it down again
When one finds himself on the ugly side of you.

You'll never justify the means
No matter when the ends could be
There is no amount of mulling it over
That could create a dryer bleed.

The elevator's dropping more than me
When there's nothing left for or me to say
Can I get myself home from this place?
I'd rather leave it all there but you're bringing it home.
