Lyrics

My world astir and sickly,
Spits out our voices singing,
"Tra la la la," on high now
To kingdom come so slightly.
Herein a void in your place
I twitch and tweak in allusion
To sit and stare so blankly
Until all hope is used up.

Why do I always need to need you when you're fleeting?
Where do you go when I'm around?
What have I done, what have I lost that's so defeating?
And have the nerve to wear the crown?

Oh, na na na na na na, hey hey hey (x4)

In some dark room
A smoky figure fills me full
Makes my head swell in ruin
My family kneels at their pew
They nod, "We believe in what you're doing."
I feel it rise above me
The western landscapes towering
And from my shell of a body
The flowers blossom for picking.

Why do I always need to need you when you're fleeting?
Where do you go when I'm around?
What have I done, what have I lost that's so defeating?
And have the nerve to wear the crown?

Oh, na na na na na na, hey hey hey (x8)

I've waited and waited for someone to take it.
Don't fight it don't bother, an inch for another.
Don't listen, don't hear them, they're in this together.
I've learned well now hear me, there's much to be fearing.
I'm used to your absence, your faceless distractions.

Oh, na na na na na na, hey hey hey (in background until end)

I've painted our patterns, but found them attractive.
Now I've been leaning toward a life far more candid.
Through lead through the dark with yours eyes as my candles
Where you're life and my life's directions can wrangle.

And all of a sudden you've left me to handle
The reasons that never forbid me to stand tall
And somehow or somewhere I found out the secret
To staying alive without actually breathing.
