I hope that you’re happy, I hope that you're well. I’ve been getting lost in daydreams, I’ve been missing out. I thought that I was ready, got my timing all wrong. Though I didn’t choose to leave, I’d still choose to stay gone. Oh but I still occupy the space we left behind. Take it in turns to make the best of what is left. We never learn but I’m sure it’s fine. I know that you’re angry, I know you think I can’t tell But I can feel it radiate from the cracks in your skull. Could you please stop the car, I think she’s gonna throw up. She got lost inside a nightmare, a daydream’s how it started now it’s changing. Wait ‘till it’s over, open your eyes Did we try and do too much? Oh but I still occupy the space we left behind. Take it in turns to make the best of what is left. We never learn but I’m sure it’s fine. Oh but I lost my sense of fear Whilst towering over the headlands Try to keep my conscience clear While I make mistakes.

I am broken, shattered glass, Glued together but in a different shape, I am loser, I am failure, Personified and validated by you. I am one with the universe, But I don’t understand their messages. I don’t understand. I am language, I am losing sleep, Foreign tongues in changing seasons Put me together but not in order, Desensitised and nothing without you. I am one with my lack of self-belief, But I don’t understand the reasons why. Or why it needs to change. And my head is buzzing with words and phrases. None of them my own. And my head is buzzing with words and phrases, All of them my own. I am human, but so is everybody else. Nothing special but so is everybody else. Simply boring but so is everybody else. I am human but so what? And my head is buzzing with words and phrases. None of them my own. And my head’s become so unreliable. But it’s all i’ve got. It’s all i’ve got. It’s all i’ve got.

I know, I know, I know. I should have stayed grounded. Volunteered to take the fall Against better judgement. Does my body float? I know, I know, I know. I should have just waited. Instead of throwing myself off And testing your patience. Does my body float? Sit down Before you hurt yourself. Again. I know I should have listened But I’d hate to make things easy. From the ABC to the spot where you left me. This is not what we had planned Since my weakened lungs gave in. Sit down Before you hurt yourself. Again. I know I should have listened But I’d hate to make things easy.

swimming in endorphins, I inhale grey clouds through nostrils, I could choose to leave tomorrow, But I feel fifty feet tall. I am crushing houses under foot, and watch nature bend to my will. But you are just a figment, imagination, A citizen with a camera phone filming all destruction The weapons that they use to take me down, won't make a scratch though oily and mottled hide. I am not attacker, It's not my fault that I have all this power to wield. Leave me to my solitude, I am not your enemy, I am not your enemy. I am just a warning of the horror yet to come. And you will know me by name, But you don't know what I am not the threat anymore. They're coming for your money, I am just a story that they use to keep you safe in line.

I’m feeling better but for how long? I toss and turn get more upset then before I’m feeling better it’s such a chore If everything’s so easy tell me when it’s over I’ve got it bad at least whatever’s left made me an emotional wreck Now I don’t want to be involved in anything if it amounts to feeling better. I’m feeling better right now

This line is metaphysical And on the one side And on the one side The bad half live in wickedness And on the other side And on the other side The good half live in arrogance And there's a steep slope With a short rope This line is metaphysical And there's a steady flow Moving to and fro Oh look you earned your wings Are you an angel now Or a vulture? Constantly hovering over Waiting for a big mistake Oh my God, what have I done? Wouldn't you love to be On the cover of a magazine? Healthy skin and perfect teeth Designed to hide what lies beneath And I feel the darkness growing stronger As you cram light down my throat And how does that work out for you In your holy quest to be above reproach? Wouldn't you love to be On the cover of a magazine? Healthy skin and perfect teeth Designed to hide what lies beneath What lies beneath
