Paper Thin Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Rick and wealthy canvas
Clustered up in jewels
Finding all your heavyweights
Are featherweights and fools
Verse 2
Broken all your promises
Broken all your paper plates
Clustered in gold
Crusted in gold
Verse 3
Heavy and hollow
Look at the shape we're in
Find us here
Paper thin
Heavy and humble
Look at the shape we're in
Find us here
Paper thin
Verse 4
In origami cities
In nations built on sand
Love got bent right outta shape
Things got outta hand
Verse 5
Polystyrene skylines
Papier mache smiles
Rusted and bruised
Tarnished and frail
Verse 6
Heavy and hollow
Look at the shape we're in
Find us here
Paper thin
Heavy and humble
Look at the shape we're in
Find us here
Paper thin, paper thin, paper thin...
Verse 7
Stars scrape the moon
And the moon scrapes the sky
We stand beneath
Wondering why
Verse 8
Stars scrape the moon
And the moon scrapes the sky
We stand beneath
Wondering why, wondering why
Verse 9
Paper buys the men
The men that make to bomb
The bomb that makes this world
Paper thin!
Verse 10
Money markets crumble
Gentle as a drum
But if you see me stumble, I'm
Paper thin!
Verse 11
Life is but a fragile thing
So delicate and pure
An accolade bestowed on us
Paper thin
Verse 12
So contemplate the skull
The skull beneath the skin
One day we all die, we're
Paper thin!
Verse 13
Bury your destruction
In your last battle hymn
The barriers between us, make 'em all
Paper thin! Paper thin!
Paper thin! Paper thin!
Verse 14
Underneath the paper moon
The sky is paper thin
Torn into a thousand shreds
So let the solar system in
Verse 15
Rick and wealthy canvas
Clustered up in jewels
Finding all your heavyweights
Are featherweights and fools
Verse 16
In origami cities
In nations built on sand
Love got bent right outta shape
Nothing ends as planned
Verse 17
And it's all - Paper thin
Paper thin. Paper thin
