lyrics

I'm feeling bad and so damn lonely
No one wants to be by my side
But who's to blame when everyone has changed
But me, oh my

As the light dances before me
I find the spectrum a bit confusing
Before you punch me in the eye
May I let our a little sigh?
Maybe then I'll begin to dream

The sorrow runs like water
Coming down the mountain
Streaming towards the sea
The two of us sitting in the cove
Burning away our teen angst dreams

Suburban life never had me blinded
Though, it did make a few attempts to bag it
Nothing's what it seems in that vast sea of housing
And everyone just keeps smiling
So my frown is what you'll see

My friends are drifting
My family's dying
My attention's slipping
With many pages left to turn
Still I read on, though, the story is dragging
So I take another shot
And deal with the burn

Oh dead God how life's been changing
And no matter how hard I try I can't seem to stop it
Feels like my whole life is falling apart
As if it were ever bound

I'm feeling numb, but please don't poke me
Though, you could sit right here by my side
Where there's no chains to bind you
Just a hand to hold
But don't you slip
It's live free or die

Still as the light dances before me
My eyes are blinded
My ears are burning
Before you get that look in yer eye
May I let out one more sigh
And listen to the sound?
