(w/ Riff A)
I move across, innocence lost
All flashing pulsar
I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt
I pass satellites
"You're so bitter," your complaint
I can't give you anything.
I don't know who you're livin for
I don't know you at all anymore
[F]I'd sooner [Bb]chew my leg off,
[Dm]Than be t[C]rapped in this cell
[F]How easy to [Bb]think of all of [Dm]this as bitter[G]sweet me
Am C G (Riff B)
I can't taste it
I'm tired and naked.
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore
Move across, candy floss
I move like a tank
Move across the room
With heart full of glue, I'm stronger than you think
Oh my peer,
Your venier is wearing thin and cracking.
The surface and forms underneath,
Underneath is lacking
I'd sooner chew my leg off,
Than be trapped in this cell
how easy to think of all of this as bittersweet me
I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked.
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore
You move across, innocence lost,
All static and desire,
You're blue in the face from a makeup case,
You set yourself on fire
You strip down, lay yourself out
I know you can't fake it,
But are you tired and naked?
Are you tired and naked? Well,
I'd sooner chew my leg off,
Than be trapped in this cell
how easy to think of all of this as bittersweet me
I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore

Here's the lyrics:
[INTRO] 
[w/ VERSE] 
I move across, innocence lost
all flashing pulsar
I move across the earth in my new pattern shirt
I pass satellites.
"You're so bitter," your complaint
I can't give you anything
I don't know who you're livin' for
I don't who you are anymore.
[PRE-CBORUS] 
I'd sooner chew my leg off,
Than be trapped in this.
How easy do you think of all of this as bittersweet me
[CBORUS] 
I couldn't taste it
I'm tired and naked
I don't know what I'm hungry for
I don't know what I want anymore.
[w/ VERSE] 
I move across, candy floss
I move like a tank
I move across the room with a heart full of gloom,
stronger than you think
Oh my peer,
your veneer is wearing thin and cracking.
the surface informs that underneath,
underneath is lacking.
[PRE-CBORUS] 
[CBORUS] 
[BRIDGE] 
[w/ VERSE] 
You move across, innocence lost,
all static and desire,
you're blue in the face from navel gaze,
you set yourself on fire.
You strip down and lay yourself out,
I know you can't fake it,
But are you tire and naked?
Are you tire and naked?
