lyrics

I believed for many years
that I would be well loved if I just did everything right
like a baby on an airplane
we call her good if she stays quiet
What I did not realize
was that I was slowly shrinking in size
every time that I turned my eyes away
instead of saying what I wanted to say
and if I make myself small enough
turn my face to the wall enough
curl into a ball enough
I will not bother you at all
cause I’m vanishing
like a top-hat magician
I’m vanishing
like the news they hide
I’m vanishing
like the oil we keep on drilling
I am vanishing
till I’m all gone
even on the inside
I can’t blame you, although I’d like to
Like to name you as conspirator in my own silence
but the truth is it’s me keeping my own mouth shut
it’s me keeping it inside
The question is one of worthiness
the question is, where do you start
I cannot embrace my fear with my fingers in my ears
determined not to hear my own heart
and if I make myself small enough
if I turn my face to the wall enough
curl into a ball enough
I won’t bother anyone at all
I’ll be vanishing
like a top-hat magician
I’m vanishing
like the news they hide
I’m vanishing
like the oil we keep on drilling
I am vanishing
till I’m all gone
yes I am vanishing
like a top-hat magician
I’m vanishing
like the news they hide
I’m vanishing
like the conscience of our nation
I am vanishing
