lyrics

My hands were tied by the strings,
From which I used to hang,
But they cut me free of my chains,
So I could breathe freely again

But now I'm ripped at the seams,
And there's bits of me on the floor,
They tried stitching me back together,
And for a little while I felt better

But where are my hands?
Where are the fans?
Pass the conductor's baton over here,
It's time to strike up the band!

This is the story of a man,
Who's done it all before,
Gingerbread Man run as fast as you can,
Before they close the door
(Before they close the door)

So now I'm nearly empty,
But the string in my chest is too tight,
Crawl on my knees and my hands,
Cos now I'm just too weak to stand

I try to fill up the holes,
Try to get back what was lost,
But here's the funniest thing,
Now I'm all tangled in string!

But where the hell are my hands?
Where are the fans?
Give me that goddamn conductor's baton,
It's time to strike up the band!

This is the story of a man,
But I've heard this one before,
Gingerbread Man run as fast as you can,
Before they close the door,
And no one's gonna pity you,
No, they all wanted more,
They all wanted more

(Instrumental)

So now I walk the streets at night,
Making new friends out of snow,
But no new connections are forming,
Cos I know they'll be gone in the morning
