The Face of the Earth
The Dismemberment Plan Lyrics


As kisses go, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary.. The alkaline lips, Her
Fingers wrapped around my belt...She had to go, She took a step back in and
Then she started to smile, I heard a funny sound, And everything seemed to
Shift,.. yeah

A crazy wail, A funny shutter of a bad magnetic event, A ghost ran through us,
Moving like a shadow of a cloud... I wasn't sure, I thought that something
Happened but I didn't know what, The moment seemed to fade, And I turned my
Eyes back to her.. That's when I saw, I freeze the look of pre-alert and study
It still, her smile starts to loosen, her pupils yawn wide And then she's
Blown... From the face of the earth

There wasn't any wind, No noise, No nothing just a body jerked skyward, limbs
Flailing like an unloved marionette, At impossible speed, Receding away like a
Far away dot...I can see her still, scream for help but no one answered... She
Turned end on end like a long lost astronaut, I felt the summer air reclaim me,
The chirp of a bird, the whisper of leaves, And I was frozen... To the face of
The earth

I never really knew the way she lived her life, I tried a couple numbers but they never called back, I didn't know her family or friends at
All... With no one to call, summer turned into fall, I gave up... It's been a
Couple years and I guess I'm fine about it, It's not like we were married It
Was three or four months, And nothing's really different Though it seems like
I've spent My life in planes, Which is kind of strange, But I don't know.......
Yeah, yeah, yeah, No, no, yeah��

As kisses go
It wasn't anything out of the ordinary
The alkaline lips
Her fingers hooked around my belt

She had to go
She took a step back in and then she started to smile
I heard a funny sound
And everything seemed to shift, yeah

A crazy wail
A funny shutter of a bad magnetic event
A ghost ran through us
Moving like a shadow of a cloud

And I wasn't sure
I thought that something happened but I didn't know what
The moment seemed to fade
And I turned my eyes back to her

That's when I saw
I freeze the look of pre-alert and study it still
Her smile starts to loosen, her pupils yawn wide
And then she's blown
From the face of the earth


There wasn't any wind, no noise, no nothing just a body jerked skyward, limbs flailing like an unloved marionette
At impossible speed
Receding away like a faraway dot

I can see her still, scream for help but no one answered, she turned end on end, moving like a long-lost astronaut
I felt the summer air reclaim me
The chirp of a bird, the whisper of leaves
And I was frozen
To the face of the earth

I never really knew the way she lived her life
I tried a couple numbers but they never called back
I didn't know her family or friends at all
With no one to call, summer turned into fall
I gave up

It's been a couple years and I guess I'm fine about it
It's not like we were married, it was three or four months
And nothing's really different though it seems like I've spent my life in planes
Which is kind of strange
But I don't know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no, yeah...

Bass refreshing as a cool summer breeze.

The best ever song about getting ghosted -- before people used the term "ghosted"

calico !

tfw the song is actually about your girlfriend blowing up but not knowing enough about her to care

Outdoor Boi

Definitely one of mine, too. The lyrics and the meaning behind them have always struck a chord with me.
