Lyrics

All lent and all spent, I don't know where it went
What I know is all pain and all sprain
Now I'm standing in a rainstorm, looking stupid

If I'm not broken now, I won't ever be
I'm stupid in the rain, it will never be
Transmute

Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change
Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change

All pensive and expensive, I don't know what I give
What I know is cheeks are wet and upset
I don't know what I get, probably nothing

If I'm not broken now, I won't ever be
I'm stupid in the rain, it will never be
Transmute

Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change
Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change

I don't know what I give
I don't know what I get
I don't know what I give
I don't know what I get, probably nothing

Time to wake and walk away

If I'm not broken now, I won't ever be
I'm stupid in the rain, it will never be
Transmute

Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change
Pb to Au, Pb to Au
Pb to Au, I want to change

I don't know what I give
I don't know what I get
I don't know what I give
