Lyrics

First & Only Miracle

Written By: The Awful Beauty

Cartoon devils haunt the star
Yawning as they laugh
Even angles drawn in crayon
Cannot stop that
Nothing ever made much sense
but the illusion that we had some kind of defense

In the daylight roams the thief
Of the meaning we all seek
With his tongue stuck in cheek and a stopwatch
In the awful folds of time
Where ambition goes to die
There's a limitless supply

The first and only miracle's existence itself--
The fact there's something not nothing instead
The first and only miracle's existence itself--
The fact there's something not nothing instead

Spectral orphans work the mine
With nothing they can hold
Goblin bosses snarl and bark
Never getting old
The star-filled egg shell is a jail
and no one has the key and no one can make bail

In the daylight roams the thief
Of the meaning we all seek
With his tongue stuck in cheek and a stopwatch
In the awful folds of time
Where ambition goes to die
There's a limitless supply

The first and only miracle's existence itself--
The fact there's something not nothing instead
The first and only miracle's existence itself--
The fact there's something not nothing instead
