Like a bird with broken wings, like the only rain in an empty sky
Like a flower in bloom in the dead of winter I'm alive
I exist in the reflections in your eyes, and all the others
Flying high, reaping all my hope to calmly die

Falling from the sky
a catastrophe
Every little lie
It's a tragedy all will see
Falling ever high
from the sky above
Psychotic and despised
Spiral into the darkness, I'm

Falling from the sky
running out of time
to make myself
an alibi
Falling from the sky
an emptiness
a lack of drive
consumes my life

I'm not done
hide the sun
I wanna die
Don't ask why I lie
Always afraid
trapped, encaged
Run, rabbit, run
Fear a dying sun

You've thought of everything
you know of nothing
I don't have a disorder
I'm just consumed with boredom

I'll take it on
Everything or nothing
Lie to me one more time
Everything or nothing

I was fine before you came along
Prescription drugs are just a way to deal with boredom
You won't be satisfied without a diagnosis
because of you I am developing psychosis

(Time Gone
I fall
Black days
We Crawl)

With death we share a smoky kiss
the air is thick with bitterness
with little time our throats are slit
one final dance with ignorance
