Hey there Fred, you set to come with us
I'm not gonna go hurdling through space in that strung out ferris wheel

Countdown, initiation
Sequence, the course is set
All systems functioning in check, all preparations have been met
Brain function at full engagement, body locked in vigilance
Awaiting contact with a destination far inside of me
Slingshot across the sky a million light years to the other side
Reality's a distant hazy dream
Exiting the atmosphere of my mind body and chemistry
My body separates itself from me

Approaching our destination, heart and mind have reached ascension
No response to signal sent, we are unable to respond to the remaining threat
Crew's incapacitated, vital signs have clearly stated
Something's gone wrong with the ship, collision course is imminent
Slingshot across the sky, no one could have imagined anything like this
Our signs are getting higher, perfection
Ascending to another state can't stop and think or hesitate
The reality of the situation has reached control

I put my faith in the absence of something better
If it doesn't fit then its out of reach for me
I'm a tightly wound mess neatly perched inside my own distress
And you talk of freedom that means nothing to me and then you say

How we ever gonna know if there's something better
Is the only way to know ourselves to go too far

I spend my days in a fear one day a wind will blow me away
The only thing that keeps me here are these strings of mine that hold me down
I watch the rise and fall of a thousand days it means nothing to me
Cause I've been promised redemption for a life, time wasted in these golden fields

So far so good so many promises
Swinging in the wind
Direction's something that I can't control
Creation eludes me its all just waiting time here in this field
Nothing but a scarecrow waiting for the world to tear me down

How we ever gonna know if there's something better
How are we ever gonna be the same if we've gone too far to realize
How are we gonna become something better than what we've become
Or are we just scarecrows waitin for the world to blow us down

It's here
I can hold em off for a while at least till I think of a way to
Make them see what I gotta show
And to make them feel what I already know now

Pour the gas all over me
Light a match say a prayer and set me free
Turn your cameras on this burning boy
I'll be the life of an image you can't destroy


Yeah to see me here is to pass me by
And to watch me live is to watch me die
Your conscience ignored, your panic spread
You're whimper in the wind that no one said

You crucify what you fear
Hold it up to the light and make it shine
The desperation in my eyes is no dim reflection I won't disguise
But you never listened too afraid to give
Now I'm giving up on you
To save face and deny you've lost your chance for a better way
A better way

Assassinate the threat immortalize the corpse
Write a book about the show and sell it to the source
Riddle me this and I'll shake your world around
Hang me on your wall and Ill bring your hurt down

You crucify what you fear hold it up to the light make it shine
The desperation in my eyes is no dim reflection I won't disguise
But you never listened too afraid to give
Now I'm giving up this time again

I paint myself a window in this world of your conception
Where it all comes down to you
You knew if you conceived it, you knew I would believe it
You knew that you would paint me into your world
I've got a one track mind, can't get you out of my mind

You call it something to say, you call it nothing to lose
You call it anything but the truth
Suffocation in words your isolation disturbs
And I can hear your voice as it echoes on

So bury over and over the songs you sing inside my head
I don't wanna lose what you left inside of me cause it's all I own

The red disguises, secrets, lies and the blue belongs to you alone
The gold is time, wasted lines of indecision dragging onward

So bury over and over the light in you that won't stay dead
I don't wanna lose what you left inside of me
Cause it's something real, pulling me under

I hear the warm hum of your voice washing over me
A blue light melody of sound that shines across my back and now
It's pulling me down, pulling me under where you hide yourself alone
Gagged and tied to the weight of ourselves


Well I won't forget this loss, the shame of regret
Turn out the lights and sit in darkness while I try to make it through

Silence, there's a monster growing strong
Silence, conspire to bring me down
Silence, I won't forget this loss
Silence, It's all I own of you now

I'm preaching life, I'm preaching thought
Cause I see it all around me as it struggles to unfold
On a world, born afraid
I don't need science, no reason to calculate what is here inside
No answers won, no questions asked
Will chase this feeling away

I know about hate, I've been in love
And I've seen everyone around me close their eyes and turn to stone
I've seen hope in disguise, well I'm not trying to save your soul
Don't wanna show direction don't wanna take control
I've been a lie I've told a lie
But I'm trying to get it better each day I try

Life, shot in the vein
Pumped in the heart awakening my soul
Knocked down, kicked in the face
Shown that the easy path is the hardest way down

I've drawn to one conclusion that no one really understands anything
We're all grinding gears don't know which way is up
Once the soul is dead the mind aint far away

On the steps of my mind one thousand thoughts decline away

I've got a feeling you were alone and on the run
With a suitcase filled with razor blades and turpentine sad eyes
Of a starlet glazed in promises made too divine to be real
A runaway too shiftless to know what is wrong don't make it right

And sometimes I wonder if I knew you could I change you
Or would you be the same to me right now

Your reason to live became a reason to die
And now you're gone
I think about you in black and white faded news print still life memory
Of a broken body in a cheap perfume disguise
Well I just wanna know you found some peace before you left this place

Well it's alright to be afraid of what your eyes can't hide
With both hands tied
Did you sink yourself did you cheat yourself
How did you stray so far and end up here
To know yourself is to destroy yourself
And what you are you could not hide
Truth is all I have to understand

Bound and bled instant fame in red
Now you're in the spotlight again
A different tale with a darker twist
But for sure you knew that you would always be the star
No lost innocence because there never was
Just you and the world, just you and the world
No fairy tale could ever end like this
It's just another bad luck tale
All used up and on the run from you

A warm Dallas breeze floats naked through the air
As a million hungry faces watch the king
And his parade on show for the world to see
Prime time America nineteen sixty three
And you were by his side
I still remember pictures, that look on your face
The king had been forsaken and his country died
In three seconds that would last an eternity
Oh Jackie-O, I wonder what you could be thinking now
Your mixed up little head has been left alone in a world so cold
Just a footnote in a history book full of lies

You such a good girl, keep smiling
Make em happy all is well in the land of make believe
As soon as the bullet left the chamber on that calm November day
You knew the world would never be the same
The killer is in us all
Just victims of ourselves looking for the perfect death
Trigger happy patriots running from ourselves
You knew it would never be this way again

Jackie-O I wonder what you're thinking now
You've been left here all on your own
In this land a world of make believe
You get back what was taken from you and go moving on

Jackie-O I wonder what you're thinking now
You're all alone in your mixed up world
Such a good little girl, a fairy tale
Wishin on a star that will never shine

One more time, then I'll know
One more lie then I'll go away
Pour another drink and I'll ease myself
Into the comforts of your philosophy
Try to understand your friend in need
And I'm here to make it easier

You and I are one in the same
We're built alike in so many ways you
Can't understand and you won't accept
Your secrets are all safely kept here

Inside we're so lost
I can be the one to find you
Everything that you deserve
No request will ever go unheard
You're better off without me now
But without me here you're better off alone

Just wait and see
You're just like me, yeah
Conversations getting stale
A penny for your thoughts, one small betrayal

Does no man know what he's good for
Does no man want what he's asked for
It so long to fill these spaces that grow on in our design

I've spent a lifetime waiting for the chance to chase these devils away
But they always come smiling when you need em the most
So I'll end this night alone again
With nothing to offer and nothing to give
Conversations spoken in vein alone

So go away, it's easier if I stay
So go away, it's easier this way
