Lyrics:

I loved you like a meteor, it cannot change its path
It's peeled by speed and fire, just kamikaze ash
Like dust on dust we follow, no cradle for regard
No grave to bury sorrow in, no arrows in our hearts
Yet bleeding mild forgiveness confessions did not earn
Whispered to the witnesses all waiting for their turn

I get tired of tired, awakened by the weight
Of the common human state
And the metaphor blackbird on fire
On soft mahogany
Doesn't carry any key

Like a bead inside a barrel I'll be burned before I'm free
Like a universal soldier I'm my own worst enemy
And I have tamed the tide of failure, I have turned the looking glass
I have harvested the future and I've paralyzed the past
And with one eye closed I'm folding to a recent memory
When that universal soldier meant everything to me

I get tired of tired, awakened by the weight
Of the common human state
And the metaphor blackbird on fire
On soft mahogany
Doesn't carry any key
