Lyrics: I'm watching the wind take everyone off of their feet
and place them upon cars in the middle of the street
Lights flicker on and off, but they never seem to go out
They'll burn the brightest when no one is around

Throw your flares into the dark sea
We'll swim and search until we find thee
Buried beneath the coral and the sunlight
We'll try to light the way

No riddle nor rhyme
Can ever explain why
The conscious mind when it runs dry
The conscious mind has nothing to hide
When left alone, their crawling around in me
Go on and be gone, drift undertow

Sinking down and further from what I was once
Reaching up and grabbing air and hoping no one
Sees me scared to death from being grown up
I am gone and looking down from every ceiling

You can laugh all you want
I'll find myself on top of the world
With a lightning bolt in the palm of my hand
Ready to strike over and over again.
I'll bestow upon you the burden of
Love and its unkempt malevolent teeth
Just smiling down at me
It's taunting me

Why didn't I leave?

The problem with compromise
Is one of us is never right
The vanity of human heads
Will kill the world's occupants

You are quivering when you speak

I know you're scared so follow me
I'll lead us out of misery
When the ground begins to crack
Just know that I will have your back

There are ashes now where people were
The greener grass is brown like dirt
Apocalypse has reached its end
It's time to begin new again
