Nothing like I want to be; my fingers can't move the way I want them to

Nothing like I want to be; my brain doesn't think the way I see it to

Nothing like I want to be; my world doesn't work the way I need it to

Nothing like I want to be; my path only corrodes the way I walk it

I'd climb out of the bucket

Invisible jaws clench my foresight

Keep me where they want to be

No where that I want to be

Nothing like I want to be

The world doesn't seem to be

about me

If it can burn without me

It can turn without me

Everything I want to be so close

yet so far from the parade

I'd walk away but

I'm just as much a part

of it as it is a part of

me the parade we created

to celebrate our favorite days

but they mean nothing

to the ones they hurt

and destroyed

they'd walk away if they could

but they are dead

now we killed them yesterday

celebrate it today in the parade

Just the way I want it to be

Keep on burning

You'll turn the same

as you want to be

just as you don't

want

to be
