I know what you wanna hear, but it ain’t what I wanna sing
I know what you wanna hear, but it ain’t what I wanna sing
Playin’ for your favor, simply ain’t my kinda thing

You might think you’re a big deal, but you ain’t a big deal to me
You might think you’re a big deal, but you ain’t a big deal to me
I ain’t attracted to your kingdom so I don’t care that you’re dangling the keys

I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms, empty rooms.

Keep all your requests, buddy I ain’t hurtin’ for your tips
Keep all your requests, buddy I ain’t hurtin’ for your tips
I ain’t been working all my life to play a bunch of cookie-cutter shit

I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms.

See, I’m blazing my own trail. Headstrong, machete sharp
I’m blazing my own trail. Headstrong, machete sharp
I’ll navigate the backwoods, you just keep sticking to your charts

I’m getting out and going places
Whatever direction that I choose
And I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms.
Woah, I wouldn’t trade my freedom for a minute on your stage
I’d rather play in empty rooms
Oh, I’d rather play in empty rooms, empty rooms.

We’ve been through hell. Sewn up our eyes
Found fuel in meds. Viewed through the narrow
Encouraged fear when so inclined
Bought peace through wars that doomed our children to die

Ego is sure to fix the world
Served up to happy boys and girls

I’d make a decision if granted the privilege
But I’m afraid my taste is unrefined
And no one likes cheap wine

When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize

You own the burg. We sleep in streets
You dine then waste. We forage to eat
Well who pays the tab when you cross the line?
Who writes the check? Who’s herding the swine?

Just takes a fence to rule the roost
As long as the scale has been reduced

How can we see the outside of the pen when survival has possession of our minds?
Calmly walk the line

When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize
All good things come with time
When you know then you’ll know
Such a marvelous find in an illusion

(Vlader Lauder sat in sorrow
For all his teeth had gone
He drank sweet rum
While fingering his gun
And eyeballed a feast
Not one bite he could eat
Somebody cut off his head!)

Dear radiation my sweet friend
Let agents dance upon my nerves
Let sunlight glow under my skin
Let toxins seep into my soul

When the clouds kiss your eye
Shadows stain on the high-rise
Raise your thumb to the sky
Fossilize
All good things come with time
When you know then you’ll know
Such a marvelous time I will find in an illusion
It’s an illusion…

It seems I should have walked away
Reverse the wager I’ve no means to pay
Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight
And blue pills coat with such disdain
I wore the shades for so long
That I’ve forgotten how to see
The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings

I know this may be hard for you to believe and all
But you only exist because we allow it

I’ve questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled?
Total understanding doesn’t seem to mean a thing
When you can’t see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can’t you hear me scream?

By the way of cosmic rays
A subtle breakdown jarred the code display
A simulation as I can tell, our cell
Playing out a hopeless scene
We stand to lose all our charm
And faith just seems to wane
A billion years can seem a stunningly short time

You’ve been beaten down time and time again
But still you find yourself at the center of it all

I’ve questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled?
Total understanding doesn’t seem to mean a thing
When you can’t see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can’t you hear me scream?

You hear me, you had one thing to do, one thing
And you fucked it up, piece of shit
Nurse, patient 666158 needs to be sedated
We need 500 CCs of Blue Comfort, muahahaha
Oh hello there, dearie
I’ve been expecting you

Posturing the way I feel
Is truth only what we believe is real?
Marvel the sketches that paint the night, starlight
And take a breath before it’s all erased away

As the embers rose through the Roman sky
Tell me were you calm when they took your life?

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

Shared with us the world well before your time
Though they took your voice words forever shine

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

As they spoke your fate a fearless man replied
“As you will sentence me, your fear is beyond mine”

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

[Verse 1]
You’ve been breaking down for far too long
Far too many moons since you felt well and strong
You see, you could say goodbye but you don’t have to die
Not ever

[Verse 2]
Engineer the wires to your brain
Architect a code so you won’t feel the pain
With your family by your side and vigor in your eyes forever
Live forever

[Chorus]
I’m way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
I shed my human side
Farther, O’ Father
I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside?
Final paradigm

[Verse 3]
What’s it really mean to be a man?
Think about your answer but please understand
While it’s natural to fear, I’ll make it disappear forever
I forever

[Chorus]
I’m way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals
I shed my human side
Farther, O’ Father
I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside?
Final paradigm

[Bridge]
(Singular I am)
I have the question if these thoughts are mine
To live forever but did something in me die?
I’m clawing my skin but I can’t feel it inside
I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better

[Outro]
I’m way up, so far up
Have I lost myself tonight?
Father, O’ Father
Have you lost that boy you used to know?
