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?
[PRE-CBORUS] 
[CBORUS]
