Lyrics

Don't you ever wonder 'bout the nowhere girl
Don't you feel sad or feel strange
There is no escaping from the nowhere girl
She's never really truly out of range

And I'm walking out of the picture
Leaving everything behind except my mind

Don't you feel temptation for the nowhere girl
She can burn your hands and sting your heart
She knows it's too late for you to save your world
And you believe that there's still time to start

Are you walking out of the picture
Leaving everything behind except your mind

She's not just a pretty face
She's a big black hole as well
She swallows everything she sees
She's not of the human race
She's a creature out of hell
She's a disease

Sh
Hasha
Hash-owd
Hash-wowd

You are just in time to see the nowhere girl
Settling her fingers 'round your brain
Saw away the taps and you're a brand new world
You'll never ever pass this way again

You're walking out of the picture
Leaving everything behind except your mind

Sh
Hush
Hash
Shhhhh
