There's no work in walking in to fuel the talk
I would grab my shoes, and then away I'd walk
 Through all the stubborn beauty I start at the dawn
 Until the sun had fully stopped
 Never walking away from
Just a way to pull apart  Dehydrate back into minerals 
A life-long walk to the same exact spot

Carbon's anniversary 
The parting of the sensory 
Old, old mystery 
The parting of the sensory 

Who the hell made you the boss?
We placed our chips in all the right spots
But still lost
Any shit head who had ever walked  Could take the ship and do a much finer job
This fit like clothes made out of wasps 
Aw, fuck it, I guess I lost

The parting of the sensory 
Carbon's anniversary 
Just part it again if you please 
Carbon's anniversary 

Who the hell made you the boss?
If you say what to do, I know what not to stop
If you were the ship, then who would ever get on?
The weather changed it for the worse 
And came down on us like it had been rehearsed 
And like we hope, but change will surely come
And be awful for most but really good for some
I took a trip to the exact same spot
We pulled the trigger, but we forgot to cock
And every single shot

Aw, fuck it, I guess we lost

 Someday you will die, and
 Somehow something's going to steal your carbon 

 Someday you will die, and
 Somehow something's going to steal your carbon 

Well, someday you will die somehow, and
Something's going to steal your carbon 

 Someday you will die, and
Someone's or something's will steal your carbon 

 Someday something will die, and
 Somehow you'll figure out how
 Often you will die somehow, and
Something's going to steal your carbon 

Well, someday you will die somehow, and
Something's going to steal your carbon
