Lyrics

When John he saw the numbers he lied Made up the whole thing, failed when he tried To cash in on his cautious new fame Always the numbers but never the name When we hit the numbers we broke Broke in and changed them changed as we spoke We knew that we would always be down Hitting the numbers spun way 'round And somebody beside you Slipped your head inside the crown The princes of the paupers And all the old showstoppers 'Til this moment's still unknown Sirens' songs have tried, too Yet, she takes you as her own The princes of the paupers And all the old showstoppers 'Til this moment's still unknown And when he got the numbers he thought Thought of his friends who slowed to a halt Who had questioned to no avail Some knew the answers, some wouldn't tell When Gabriel saw the numbers he fell Fell through the clouds into the great well But woke up before he hit the ground No one had noticed still he looked 'round And somebody beside you Slipped your head inside the crown The princes of the paupers All the old showstoppers 'Til this moment's still unknown Sirens' songs have tried, too Yet, she takes you as her own The princes of the paupers And all the old showstoppers 'Til this moment's still unknown With her hand to guide you You are nothing if not home The princes of the paupers And all the old showstoppers 'Til this moment's still unknown
