Cut the tongue from my mouth
And leave me here to bleed
Try to hard to find out
Whatever do you mean?

It takes some time to come down
Is nothing what it seems?
This house of cards will fall down
Unless neither of us breathe

Don't you say a word
Don't even try to hide
Watch the damn thing burn
Find some peace of mind

That's how it goes
God only knows how far this can go
Somewhere below
God only knows

Does the poison burn your skin?
As it drips from your harsh tongue
Let the end begin
The reckoning has come

Forget all that you've heard
Behind those liar's eyes
Wasting what we've learned
Blinded by the signs

That's how it goes
God only knows how far this can go
Somewhere below
God only knows

It takes some time to come down
Is nothing what it seems?
This house of cards will fall down
Unless neither of us breathe

Midway through, at the fifth stanza (presumably the beginning of a second verse after a chorus), what is a fairly strict meter written into the language itself kind of goes catawumpus. Probably not an issue if sung because you can emphasize/force certain syllables to be accented.
