I was born Born inside a hearse Lived my life Lived my life in reverse Just a countdown 'til today Today's the day I leave my grave Today's the day I come of age Happy graduation day Hope you're ready for the next phase I'm burning, I'm a midnight blaze I'm blinding, I am a brilliant haze But I feel myself losing heat And I'm lonely, baby please don't leave Don't look back It was just a heart attack Close your eyes Cause the world is upside down And it's almost New Years now Walking in the snow and hail Cross my heart, hope it don't fail You were its hardest test Left me in cardiac arrest I'm burning, I'm a midnight blaze I'm blinding, I am a brilliant haze But I feel myself losing heat And I'm lonely, baby please don't leave I'm freezing, I'm the falling snow I am darkness, a forgotten road A rolling stone that will not roll And I'm lonely, baby please don't go

Wildfires 03:32
I’m a wildfire on the loose I’m spreading out, I’m on the move Don’t stand so close to me You’re standing where I want to breathe Try to stop me but it’s no use Wildfires have to move Have to move Have to move I’m crawling through burrows I’m slipping through loopholes I’m walking through windows I’m sinking down drain holes A new world is waiting A new world is waiting A new world is waiting A new world is waiting I’m a river, a borderline I’m a home, I am a state of mind You can build whatever it takes You’ll be making a big mistake Try to shape me but it’s no use A river has to move Has to move Has to move I’m sliding through loose fence I’m gliding on pretense I creak beneath floorboards I’m sneaking through backdoors A new world is waiting A new world is waiting A new world is waiting A new world is waiting And it won’t wait for long.

Miracle Diet 03:19
Now and then I get bent out of shape And I can't move Under all my weight I’m just a door That you don’t use anymore Push until you ache But I’m stuck in place Nobody’s safe When I feel this way I’ve been upside down Now I’m right side up Someone switched the taps And now the cold is hot I’m a broken valve All rusted through You can turn me on And I will turn on you It’s getting harder to swallow And my throat’s getting sore It will be harder tomorrow This is a cruel form of war Someone put lead in the water Someone poisoned the food It’s a miracle diet That’s why I’m looking so good Nobody’s safe When I feel this way

Walk on over to my window Take a good look down below This is not the world I wanted This is not the world I know I used to have a forest Lost it looking at a tree You used to be my mirror But now no one looks at me A curtain call, a final bow My time is up, but I’m not down It’s not like me to wait around This is your adventure now There used to be a river Now there’s just a trail of tears A path paved with broken glass And totems from past years Changed my clothes and cut my hair Shot my last arrow in the air Watched it sail above the ground But it still hasn’t come back down A curtain call, a final bow My time is up, but I’m not down It’s not like me to wait around This is your adventure now

Allergic 03:12
I’m just a tiny cockroach Scurrying across a tightrope On the wrong end of your telescope Looking for some hope In a moment of belligerent boredom I forgot to refrigerate the impulse Took the bait and swallowed the insult When will I learn I’m allergic to you? I’m just an expired fire extinguisher Tired of hanging on the wall But too afraid to fall Am I still useful at all? In a moment of belligerent boredom I forgot to refrigerate the impulse Took the bait and swallowed the insult When will I learn I’m allergic to you? I’m just another double decker bus Left out in your backyard to rust Where I can see you sharpening your knives Took me for granted, but I’m planning one last drive In a moment of belligerent boredom I forgot to refrigerate the impulse Took the bait and swallowed the insult When will I learn I’m allergic to you?

Does the sun reflect the moon? Does the ocean dream of streams? You can call them selfish Just like gravity I’m building my own statue It’s gonna be 100 feet high I’m not embarrassed to admit it It’s a celebration of my life Gather the props Rearrange the chairs Prepare the room Make it look like you don’t care Swap out the lens Adjust the frame You may think you know me But you better think again A sapling needs some water And protection from the wind No one else will do it for you So I’m asking as a friend I may be looking for a handout But it won’t cost you a thing To give me a little water And protection from the wind Gather the props Put on a different shirt Prepare the room But nothing too overt Swap out the lens Adjust the frame You may think you know me But you better think again

I’ve been losing time for days Wishing that you would go away You really got some kind of nerve I guess we got what we deserved I feel a pressure in my lungs I feel a tension in my mouth Now every word’s reversed And every whisper is a shout In the hollows of my heart In the backroads of my brain Some part of me dreamed you up Some part of me is to blame There’s a black hole in my heart It will sweep you all inside And drag you through my veins You will never be the same In the hollows of my heart In the backroads of my brain Some part of me dreamed you up Some part of me is to blame

The old man Of the mountain Has fallen down at last At least it ended fast His face collapsed In a landslide Just after midnight I can’t remember what it looked like Even in a granite state He couldn't hold his face Not like you could You never let it slide Why let a good thing die? You will take it on the chin again Cause you can't help leaning in You can't stop listening for more Your face pressed against the door You’re an interesting specimen You’re an antiquated lesson book You’re a long forgotten recipe I’ve never been much of a cook Say excuse me Say pretty please No matter what you do You part the seas Wherever you have been People reacting Like you're an allergen A lightning rod, A third rail, a fifth column An evil spell The truth is always a hard sell At the bottom of a mystery In the middle of a rift You always were so sensitive You feel the continental drift You’re an interesting specimen You’re an antiquated lesson book You’re a long forgotten recipe I’ve never been much of a cook

Goodbye 03:59
These lips have uttered Endless useless information Half baked sentences of repentance In search of reconciliation I’ve gotten high on my own supply Of righteousness and indignation Where’s my award, my Nobel prize For suffering and degradation All winter long, I soldiered on Through the darkness and the freezing A bitter wind cuts through my clothes But my heart is warm cause it’s the season For goodbyes Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye I woke up dreaming of another time Another heart, another mind Another moon, another tide Whose gravity could steer us right My eyes are unfocused My mind is ablaze Pour another cup of coffee Just to keep myself awake I’ve wasted time, losing my mind Trying to shame you into leaving I won’t deny, I was naive But I needed something to believe in I am a stone that’s come to rest I am a razor that lost its edge But I have to find a way I’ve got so much left to say To you Like goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye Goodbye
