lyrics

i think i’ve found a reason
to build my life upon
i say it fast, like famous last words
turn around, and the life i’d found is gone

so the world is what i say it is
until i turn out wrong

and scattered in the wreckage
as it’s been a thousand times before
are the pieces i’d so carefully assembled
multiplied, and polarized once more

so the world is what i say it is
a game of wits
it seems to which
i’ll never know the score

so i cry into the darkness
as the scattered fragments of my mind
oh they wheel above my consciousness
just like birds of prey
crying oh my god, how dare you strike me blind

so the world is what i say it is
i’m a thinking man
and i’ll be damned
if i’ll be undermined

but wait
the dawn is breaking
without the aid of words
and the grace
of ages
will go on burning up the sky
whether or not i am heard

whether or not i am heard
