    Lyrics

    second intermission
    anticipation
    you know the third act
    small talk drops out of the play
    you're standing in the lobby
    tightening your tourniquet
    waiting for it
    waiting for it
    and then the bell sounds
    and the lights flash
    and there's all these questions milling around
    and there's no time to ask

    no bliss for little miss leading
    she's learning about bleeding
    but what is love if not exquisite?
    our only saving grace or is it?
    and somewhere inside your iris
    blooms the reflection of my surprise
    as you stroll past every last do not enter
    and touch me at my epicenter
    and the bell sounds
    and the lights flash
    and there's all these questions milling around
    and there's no time to ask

    i'm always trying to get there
    i never really get there
    to that quiet place where i accept myself
    instead i'm deep inside some high school
    locker room no clothing
    popping the zits of my self-loathing under fluorescent lights
    and the bell sounds
    and the lights flash
    and there's all these questions milling around
    and you're too ashamed to ask

    second intermission
    anticipation
    you know the third act
    small talk drops out of the play
    you're standing in the lobby
    tightening your tourniquet
    waiting for it
    waiting for it
