lyrics

We’re always let down. (x4)
 
New acquaintance, how do you do?
More time passes, I think I know you.
Another chit-chat, another drink.
You split open, tell me what you think.
 
We’re always let down. (x4)
 
Now you’re smaller, a different hue.
You say some things and I agree with you.
But wait. You continue. That’s not all.
Say something stupid, skin begins to fall.
 
Russian doll 
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
Russian doll
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
doll.
 
We’re always let down. (x4)
 
Now you’ve moulted, skin’s in retreat.
Head to feet, ecdysis is complete.
But wait. Something’s glowing?
Beneath the skin.
Something golden.
 
Russian doll 
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
Russian doll
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
doll.
 
Decorticating the final fold.
Are you pyrite? Or is your core of gold?
Nitric acid, to a scratch;
You turn green,
So what was held inside you did not deserve to hatch.
 
Russian doll 
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
doll.
Russian doll
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
Russian doll
that peels to reveal
a new lesser version
that only holds another
doll.

We’re always let down. (x3)
