The Crashing

-

I

Ate

Every

__inch

____of my brain

No-

-Thing

Left but a

__sour

____taste of blood

When

I

Flew

Backward

__to the quicksand

I heard the world fall away

-

And I see the crashing

(I never know

__what is wrong)

And I see them dying

("There's nobody here, but us mice")

-

Why?

When

I thought that

__all

____could be done

Here

Hearts

__grind into

____a black hole

Ouch

Wow

Thee emptiness

__knows

____nothing now

But heart felt apologies

-

And I see the crashing

(I never know

__what is wrong)

And I see them dying

"There's nobody here, but us mice")

-

( transcendent music )

-

__if I lost my way

__when the stars come for me

____soon

__what am I gonna tell them all?

__if I were the bricks thrown into the water

__how will the lights go out now?

__I never needed to stay alive

__I never never needed to die

__I ate my head for dinner

__didn't quite like tasting my brain

__but 'twas all that I had left

____I was hungry

__I never learned how to pray

-

And I see the crashing

(I never know

__what is wrong)

And I see them dying

(There's nobody here, but us mice") [ repeat chorus thru fade out ]
