lyrics

The missing pieces of my mind
Collected and combined
Approximate someone I barely know
I'm not sure though.
Place your fool's bet
On this planet
At your own risk
Don't you know this?
Here comes your bit part
Don't miss your cue.

All the things I might've been
Deprived of oxygen
Are fossilized, unearthed and second guessed
All for the best.
What I am now or become
A reduced and rounded sum
Is multiplied by zero leaving none
A new square one.
Place your fool's bet
On this planet
No one's won yet
In retrospect
Maybe we can laugh because it's true.
It's true.

There was something in your gaze
That stayed with me for days
Suggesting the first home I'd ever known
A rent-to-own.
The missing pieces of my mind
A real flea market find
Are bought for cheap and kept in a junk drawer
Can't ask for more.
Place your fool's bet
On this planet
At your own risk
Don't you know this?
Now it seems it's down to me and you.
