All our friends 
Now seem so thin and frail
Slinky secrets 
Hotter than the sun

No peachy frairs

Blank screen tv 
Preening ourselves in the snow
Forget my name 
But I'm over you

Blended sunrise
And it's a dying world
Humming Rheingold 
We scavenge up our clothes

All my violence, raging tears upon the sheets
I'm resentful, for we're strangers when we meet

Cold tired fingers 
Tapping out your memories
Halfway sadness 
Dazzled by the new

Your embrace 
It was all that I feared
That whirling room 
We trade by vendu

Steely resolve is falling from me
My poor soul, poor bruised passivity
All your regrets ran rough-shod over me
I'm so glad that we're strangers when we meet

I'm so thankful, cause we're strangers when we meet.
I'm in clover, for we're strangers when we meet.
Heel head over, cause we're strangers when we meet.

Strangers when we meet. (x9)
