Outside Your Mind

I tried to see what was coming next
You couldn't wait anymore
I knew that I had it worked out at rest
You shouldn't care anymore

Fear I'm losing my grip on it
But I still dance upon it, now
It doesn't seem to change a thing
For all that I know

I tried to breathe but the air was too dense
I can hardly see anything
I got a funny taste in my mouth
Anticipating what's next

Now it doesn't seem to change a thing
But what would I know?
And a damaged thought won't change a thing
Outside of your mind

 

Isolate

Couldn't have bit my tongue hard enough
I left this way too long
Ignorance blooms ideals, fake and so unsure
Your head's been filled

Tell me what's on your mind
You never used to keep these things inside
Well feed me some truth 
Cos if those thoughts don't eat you then I will
You're better alone
You're better alone

This begging and nagging chore
She told me she was getting way too bored
It's only a matter of time
But you should know we're wasting yours not mine

"I'll stay if I can smoke"
I laughed in her face, I thought it was a joke
Well give them away cos if those things don't kill you then I will
You're better alone
You're better alone

 

Crawl

Keep soaking up my words
Play it on
It's not for me, not for me
Hit back where it hurts
We can't run
It's happening, happening

Well I don't wanna hear it
I know I'm not wrong
You wanna see it all? Well go
You'll come back crawling

Damaged from control
Leaking eyes
You're scratching now, underneath
Open up your wounds
Read the lines
"I believe, I believe"

Well I don't wanna hear it
I know I'm not wrong
You wanna see it all? Well go
You'll come back crawling

 

E

You're not ready to step down
You know they'll try and break it

Your room seems smaller than before
But empty as it's always been

Smile like you mean it

Hands still shaking
Your head's stopped spinning
The world is yours
You've gone insane

Talk so high, so artful
Feed the air, I'm so full

Smile like you mean it
I know you don't mean it
I know you don't 

 

Meatsuit

I can't cover it anymore
I'm just one of the failed sorts
So much room to move outside
So little time to move
Can you throw it back to me?
I can't do without it
I'll step back so I can breathe
I can do without it

I wanna fly before I die
I wanna fly

I feel so stuck to the ground 
From what I see through my eyes
The part of me that can break free 
Is stuck in a meat suit

I wanna fly before I die
I wanna fly

I wanna fly before I die
I wanna fly before I die
I wanna fly
I wanna fly
I wanna fly

 

Artistic Autist

Bend to your own will
The world won't stand still
They'll eat what you kill
Break in
We'll let you win
You deserve it
Where have you been?

I've been down there before
Don't wait for me to come and save you
There's so much left for you to learn
And I've seen that face before
Don't look at me cos I can't take it
I won't be here when you return

Hollow, broken, shallow
Left on your own
Could I borrow
Internal anesthetic
Leaves you homesick 
So pathetic

I've been down there before
Don't wait for me to come and save you
There's so much you will never know
And I wish I had've known
To handle this one with more care
When you were falling off your broken throne

You've been down here before
I'll wait for you to come and save me
There's nothing left for me to learn
And I've seen that face before
Don't look away cos I can't take it
Will you be here when I return?
