Lyrics

I signed the papers
For a lifelong lease
I rent the earth where I stand
And the air I breathe

Then you forget that
Deal you meet with God
While busy finding yourself
Being young, being dumb and in love

It's all too easy
And you're easily bored
Never once has it crossed your mind
That life's too short

And there's a third person walking behind us
Tap on the back and it's there to remind us
Life is a blink of an eye 'til you are no more

So I stand back and I watch us fall
As we break everything inside these hotel walls
Life's for rent then you call us out
So I hand back the key as the doorman bows

They greet you welcome
With roses and champagne
When you walk through the lobby
They all know your name

But all beautiful things come with edges and thorns
And the body you borrowed
Is starting to look kinda worn

So I stand back and I watch us fall
As we break everything inside these hotel walls
Life's for rent then you call us out
So I hand back the key as the doorman bows

We're just grains in the universe
I let that comfort me when I'm anxious
This life is beautifully ugly at times
We're just grains in the universe
I let that comfort me when I'm anxious
This life is beautifully ugly at times

It's beautifully ugly at times
It's beautifully ugly at times
It's beautifully ugly at times
It's beautifully ugly at times

So I stand back and I watch us fall
As we break everything inside these hotel walls
You know that life's for rent then you call us out
So I hand back the key as the doorman bows
