lyrics

There is no unified self
Any more than there's a unified everything else
There is no heaven or hell
But no myth has or ever will be fully dispelled

There's nothing to wedding bells
Unless you listen carefully and stay real still
'Cause there is no unified self
So each of us for both of us is really just as well
It's really just as well

There is no wasting of time
So don't throw out the meaning just because the words rhyme
No intelligence nor design
Accounts for all this distance 'tween your arms and mine

I'm flying blindly for home
That door inside your heart I didn't see till it closed
But there is no wasting of time
So this could be the valley that leads into our prime
Into our prime

I didn't know this could be you
I didn't know what you were gonna change into

There is no unified self
So I can't really love you more than anyone else
There is no heaven or hell
So whatever gets you through the night should work out swell

There's nothing to wedding bells
So you can plug your ears and just run like hell
'Cause there is no unified self
So I'll just give that love we made to somebody else
