Does it seem to be persisting?
Does it seem to be persisting?

All of your pretty things
Your petty pretty things are gone
The ground beneath your feet
Isn't the stable earth you thought

A song so sweetly sung
As if the offer would rescind
Credit all firsthand accounts
With need to write about and spin
Mistakes

They're all mistakes
Are all mistakes
But on the way down
On the way down
Before you can see

All the way down
You laugh with the pieces
You just can't explain it all away
The damage and after you atone
This is all you have to show

All of your pretty things
Those petty pretty things you lost
Discerning tastes agree
The who you used to be was awful
To be true

And now we see you
Now we see you
All the way down
On the way down
Before you can see

All the way down
You laugh with the pieces
You just can't explain it all away
The damage and after you atone
This is all you have to show for it

Does it seem to be persisting?
Does it seem to be persisting?
Does it seem to be persisting?
