Every time I wake up I wonder if it's going to be the day I lose my mind I see it all around me, the writing on the walls, but I can never read the signs I tell myself I'll be alright, that I am in control But it only takes one careless step to go tumbling down the rabbit hole ​ Out of desperation I lifted up a loaded gun and pointed at my brain I didn't pull the trigger, just had to feel some power over all this psychic pain I don't know if I'll be alright, if I can keep control 'Cause it only takes one little slip to go one-way down the rabbit hole ​ Down, down, down, down, down, down, down Down, down, down, down, down, down, down ​ I'm on the edge ​ Drowning in depression, I'm hoping this anxiety is just a passing phase I take my medication and slip into a temporary mollifying haze They're telling me I'll be alright, that I will get control But I can't see any way out of this while I'm staring down the rabbit hole ​ Down, down, down, down, down, down, down Down, down, down, down, down, down, down ​ Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey!

Can you hear me? Out here so very far Reaching for a second chance Another shining star We had to leave you And everything behind Too late to save our broken world You'll be there as she dies ​ We are waking from synthetic sleep No more waiting, counting chemical sheep Bodies shaking after sailing through A vast and empty sea ​ Can you hear me? Disaster stalks our flight Too fast to keep our rendezvous Hurtling through the night Desire in our reach We can almost feel the ground Reaching out for anything To slow our lifeboat down We can make it, we've come so close Calculating one more desperate approach Engine ready, say a prayer and ignite Radioactive hope ​ Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Can you hear me? ​ She slips away We stumbled in our dance Woke up just outside a dream At least we'll have a glance She's beautiful There's water everywhere Now shrinking from our view A star-crossed love affair ​ Can you hear me? Can you hear me? Can you hear me?

She walks like a whisper Smiles like the morning sun But her eyes betray the secret Of a heart that's come undone She writes with a razor Her story's etched into her skin It's beautiful but tragical Like a poem lost in the wind She fades away She fades away Even though she lost her light She'll still shine bright ​ She looks out the window After the sun's already set There's a faint reflection in the glass Of a girl I won't forget ​ She wants to reach tomorrow But today runs deep and wide If she could stand on top of desperate thoughts She'd climb up the other side ​ She fades away She fades away Even though she lost her light She'll still shine bright ​ She's gonna be alright She'll be alright ​ She fades away She fades away Even though she lost her light She'll still shine bright

You need some distance to see what I see Your self-deprecation, it baffles me You seem to find beauty everywhere you look Except in the mirror where there's something wonderful It breaks my heart How much you hurt ​ From where I stand I can see your kindness From where I stand I can feel your soul From where I stand I'm so impressed From where you stand I wish that you felt whole I think you're whole I wish I could be anybody else Maybe you're like me when you reflect on yourself There's so much magic in all that you do I wish you could see through my eyes looking back at you ​ It breaks my heart How much you hurt From where I stand I can see your kindness From where I stand I can feel your soul From where I stand I'm so impressed From where you stand I wish that you felt whole From where I stand (I think you're whole) From where you stand (I think you're whole) From where I stand I can see your kindness From where I stand I can feel your soul From where I stand I'm so impressed From where you stand I wish that you felt whole I think you're whole

Hurt By You 03:23
I know what it's like to bleed Erase these scars and there'd be nothin' left of me And I've been beaten to the ground There's a familiar taste of dirt inside my mouth ​ I've been hurt before, taken a hit or two I've been hurt before But not like I've been hurt by you, you cut me on the inside Not like I've been hurt by you, this pain will never subside ​ I've made some tactical mistakes Who knew that I had so much blood inside my face? And now my body's not the same The girls in radiology all know my name ​ I've been hurt before, taken a hit or two I've been hurt before But not like I've been hurt by you, you cut me on the inside Not like I've been hurt by you, this pain will never subside ​ Hurt. By. You. ​ I've been hurt before, taken a hit or two I've been hurt before But not like I've been hurt by you, you cut me on the inside Not like I've been hurt by you, this pain will never subside Not like I've been hurt by you, you cut me on the inside Not like I've been hurt by you, within an inch of my life, f*** you! ​ Not like I've been hurt by you Not like I've been hurt by you Not like I've been hurt by

Wake up and follow your dream Wave at everyone you see Keep the faith up on your hill You found your heart, she's with you still Wake up Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world ​ Stand up to people who hate Be taller than the lies they make You have more than they can see Your book of love is all you need Stand up ​ Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world ​ They haven't been where you've been Haven't seen what you've seen So go on, go on, go on ​ Look up to the face on the moon Remember who's smiling down on you Hard to learn when things go right You need the dark to find the light Look up ​ Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world Send a wave around the world ​ Look up Stand up Wake up

Here at the bar you're dripping with innuendo Your eyes so pretty, how can I not pretend? I can't hear my life underneath this crescendo All I can think right now is, "where will this end?" I want to be here, but I gotta go home Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go I want to be here, but I gotta go home ​ Making your moves, now we are dangerously close DJ's on fire and I'm drunk from the heat Your hands are asking questions I should not answer It's getting harder, I'm an inch from defeat ​ I want to be here, but I gotta go home Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go I want to be here, but I gotta go home ​ You've made your case Make up your mind I've gotta think I'm wasting time ​ I want to be here, but I gotta go home Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go I want to be here, but I gotta go home ​ Ya, ya, ya...

To the Crows 04:29
I stand beneath the canopy of dying autumn leaves The emptiness inside of me is colder than the breeze I've come this way a hundred times to walk beneath the crows Just so I could listen, try to find out what they know ​ I keep on getting older, keep on waiting to be wise But every truth I find comes with another pack of lies No place to find redemption, no ransom for my soul I want to die right here and leave my body ​ To the crows To the crows ​ Small black eyes are watching me as if they know it's time Can they hear my heart? Can they read my mind? A rusty pistol in my hand, it only has one round The taste of bitter steel I don't even hear the sound ​ The pavement rushes up with a bed of fallen leaves The murder up above me goes exploding from the trees No faith in resurrection, no respite for my soul I fly away from here and leave my body ​ To the crows To the crows ​ They were calling, calling...
