lyrics

I now see what I could've done differently
Given a choice, you'd let my voice get in the way
You now see that your time's better spent away from me
Given a choice, I'd let my voice have a say

With these sweet dreams and pleasantries
All my gladness outweighs my sadness
You see right through me thanks to Pleasantries
You see through me - Thanks, Pleasantries
We, Pleasantries, say, "Thanks gentlemen and ladies, boys and girls, and everyone in between."

It's not over until I'm under
Under the dirt sprouting a flower
Flowers are allies - I decompose to fertilize
Shower the flowers consistently
How are they consistently lovely?

With all these sweet dreams and Pleasantries
All my gladness outweighs my sadness
I understand it, but I can't stand it
You say I'm dead but I swear I'm still living, I'm living

It's not over until I'm under
Under the dirt sprouting a flower
Flowers are allies no matter which side they reside
Shower the flowers consistently
How are they consistently lovely?

The only part of me that wanted to was the part of me that is you
It is outnumbered consistently
It is outspoken as it's saying,
"Shower the flowers consistently,"
How are they consistently lovely?

I understand it but I can’t stand it
You say I’m dead but I swear I’m still living, I’m living

They're touching everything
All and everything's feeling
All that Pleasantries is singing
All and everything's feeling fine

How much lost and how much gained?
How much left and how much remains?
It all feels the same

They're touching everything
All and everything's feeling so fine

This chime shows that you're alive
You will know it in time
It's known you for a time
They're touching everything
All and everything's feeling alive

This chime shows that her love’s died
It's known you for a time
You will know it in time

They're everything to me
All the Pleasantries touch me, It's alright

With these sweet dreams and with Pleasantries
All my gladness outweighs my sadness
You see right through me thanks to Pleasantries
You see through me
Thanks, Pleasantries
