These days I'm feeling foggy The mist is seeping from the walls I wake up feeling groggy I've been breathing the same air for much too long But oh, the way I'm treading water I'm breathing much too deep Don't know if I can hold out longer But maybe I just need to sleep If I could change out my brain for a lighter one, I would 'Cause it's too heavy If I could show all my friends that I'm doing fine, I would But it's too heavy I flow down to the sewer, caught in a flash flood That washes me down the storm drain I spin around and round With all the other leaves and discards Pull me down into your arms Let's call it a watery embrace I can't stop asking, "Do I have to wait to see your face?" I don't know if I'm gonna lose my reason While I'm stuck in this place The room is spinning while I decide If I can still feel my face If I could change out my brain for a lighter one, I would 'Cause it's too heavy If I could show all my friends that I'm doing fine, I would But it's too heavy If I could change out my brain for a lighter one, I would 'Cause it's too heavy If I could take a moment to think about what's killing me, I would But it's not easy If I could change out my brain for a lighter one, I would 'Cause it's too heavy If I could tell all my friends that I'm doing fine, I would But I'd be lying If I could change out my brain for a lighter one, I would 'Cause it's too heavy If I could take a moment to think about what's killing me, I would But I'm too busy

My Attitude 04:30
Maybe I should talk a little less Maybe you should clean up your own mess I need to think, I guess Maybe there's no other way to say That I'm just gonna turn and walk away And I'm not gonna change I think we both knew that this was Coming down the chute because I Only think so much before I crack And drop the act Since I won't amount to anything Why don't I just see myself out A sharp tongue comes with a little sting But just don't think about it It's inevitable, my attitude will do me in Do me in How would you feel if someone said to you, "I have nothing to do with your issues" I won't cater to you You're a narcissist, or can you explain The rotten fruit in my brain Causing me to doubt myself again? It's so obvious to me that Every astral body circles Round and round a central point, that's you Since I won't amount to anything Why don't I just see myself out A sharp tongue comes with a little sting But just don't think about it It's inevitable, my attitude will do me in Do me in

Went out to dinner at a burger stand You wouldn't let me take you by the hand Are you embarrassed to be seen with me? You're looking out the window like I don't understand Well, what the fuck am I supposed to do with that? (You tell me that I'm crazy when the opposite is a fact) Tell me what you're thinking and don't just turn your back If loving you is such a pointless exercise (Then I'm not gonna do it, no I'm not gonna do it) You think it's funny that I missed all of your lies? (And I'm not gonna do it, I wish I'd seen right through it) What the fuck am I supposed to do, Now that It's all over and I'm leaving you (I'm leaving you) 'Cause loving you is such a pointless exercise (And I'm not gonna do it, I wish I'd seen right through it) When we're together you seem far away You don't relate to anything I say You made me think there's something wrong with me While you're staring at your phone 18 hours a day Well, what the fuck am I supposed to do with that? (You tell me that I'm crazy when the opposite is a fact) Tell me what you're thinking and don't just turn your back If loving you is such a pointless exercise (Then I'm not gonna do it, no I'm not gonna do it) You think it's funny that I missed all of your lies? (And I'm not gonna do it, I wish I'd seen right through it) What the fuck am I supposed to do, Now that It's all over and I'm leaving you (I'm leaving you) 'Cause loving you is such a pointless exercise (And I'm not gonna do it, I wish I'd seen right through it)

On a walk to the park I saw many rooms, few unoccupied I'm in love with the sun The feel of the air, the breeze and the sky There are so many things that I wish to see So many places to go Like into the arms of the woman I love She lives on the coast If I can stay lucid I can come up with a plan to Take my body out to the sea And if I'm able, you can bet your heart We will focus on you and me I can't wait to be old, to say something wise And then fall asleep Like "don't just assume that no one will learn The secrets you keep" Ashes to ashes, dust to dust Fallen leaves from the vine I stare into the void, it stares back at me As I'm wasting my time

Caught in a dream Outlines fade away She hears a scream Jolting her awake A gentle breeze blows through the window Moonlight through trees Bask in an eerie glow But she didn't know... She leaves the bed Outlines begin to dissolve And with each breath She starts to forget it all I wouldn't ever leave your side Not for a thousand paper suns And when I step into the sky You know I'm coming home What are you doing up right now? I tried to sleep but I got freaked out I wish you weren't so far away So I could be there when you wake Be there when you wake Caught in a dream Moonlight breaking Shifting flurry Blue eyes penetrating Caught in a dream (It's time to wake up) Moonlight breaking (It's time to wake) Sudden seizure (It's time to wake up) Wonder what comes after Somewhere the sky is burning I hope the world keeps turning Please stop asking me What are you doing up right now? I tried to sleep but I got freaked out I wish you weren't so far away So I could be there when you wake Be there when you wake x2 Be there with you
