lyrics

I’m a mess and a wreck
I can’t believe I didn’t see this before
I’ve been bouncing from bad idea to bad idea
Oh no

This cold air has been playfully nipping at my skin
But with each bite it has gotten less and less playful

I can breathe a little bit but
It’s so very shallow
I don’t want a little bit I
I want the whole thing
My hand’s been over my mouth for so long I’m
Finding out that I’m my own worst enemy

Let’s burn this city down no it mustn’t stand so tall anymore
(I want to see the night sky paint with flames and for)
This pulling moment you’ll deal and I’ll be all in
I’m living the sensation that my skin is on too tight
(I don’t have the drive, courage, will to fight it)
I see the play’s in your hands
This is the death of a man

I feel I miss the sun
I haven’t seen the sun
(Because these buildings I built are so tall they)
In all these years
(Block the sun and the hand of God)

Buildings of a city built on hopes and dreams
Hopes and dreams that were selfish and corrupt from the beginning
Over time they lose their luster and shine
Consequently I begin to lose mine

There was once green
There was once sun
There was once life
Oh God
What have I done?

I’ve made a mess of my own life
I’ve got no more fight in me
I don’t want to be in charge anymore

((Like) Chloroform knock me down to the floor)

Let’s burn this city down no it mustn’t stand so tall anymore
(I want to see the night sky paint with flames and for)
This pulling moment you’ll deal and I’ll be all in
I’m living the sensation that my skin is on too tight
(I don’t have the drive, courage, will to fight it)
I see the play’s in your hands
This is the death of a man
