"Don't look down now"...

lyrics

Verse One:

She said, "I'm so lost I'll never stay found,
and everything is black and white around me how these colors never change out,
all I can do is learn to celebrate my grays now,
I'm hiding from the sun with my umbrella made of rain clouds".
Face down on her pillow full of hopeless dreams,
she's window gazing endo blazing fingers through my smoking rings.
And me?
I'm limbo status with these ghosts of kings,
I'm infinitely dis-con-figure-eighted from my dopamines an opening,
and so I magnify the stir of echos passing like the blur of my opacifying urge to let go,
I'll amplify and vandalize my words with pencils,
stencil in the answers why my path in life is worst example.
I'll trample over bridges that I burned to get here,
from different distances I'm whispering my words to deaf ears,
theres nothing left here but this moment that I won't remember,
cold December frozen in the minutes that I turn to next year.
Your perfect nothings look so scarred and tarnished,
starving for acknowledgment and swallowing your heart of darkness.
That certain something took apart and harnessed all of your apologists that follow those that harm the harmless.
And so I'll piss away the threat of having nothing left but death in this eviscerated flesh,
I wont assimilate my steps or try to integrate whats left of this disintegrated mess and let you give away the rest...

Chorus:

So don't look down now,
We're too afraid that we'll fall,
when there's no sun above us,
and theres no light around us,
and theres no ground below us,
don't look down now
So don't look down now,
We're too afraid that we'll fall,
when there's no sun above us,
and theres no light around us,
and theres no ground below us,
don't look down now

Verse Two:

I'm losing my composure,
trying to find some beauty in this lost blood,
while realizing that I'm only human when I'm not one,
and I felt so alive in my confusion till it got numb,
enough for this mirage of life's illusions in the hot sun.
Provoked to overlook that broken crooked oath you took,
an open book you wrote with both your hooks inside my throat you shook,
I hope you put it all away and learned to stay alone,
save your own imaginary game of thrones you played alone,
I made it home.
I'm leaving pieces of my certainties for grief and insecurities with demons in my circuitry,
I'll feed them with the credence that I needed in the urgency,
believing I was free when I could see they mean to murder me,
I'll keep my distance,
and you can keep your tales of cautionary crosses while I'm walking on a plot that's made of coffins buried,
often staring off into these arbitrary dots,
and these constellations I connect to causes I forgot...

Chorus:

So don't look down now,
We're too afraid that we'll fall,
when there's no sun above us,
and theres no light around us,
and theres no ground below us,
don't look down now
So don't look down now,
We're too afraid that we'll fall,
when there's no sun above us,
and theres no light around us,
and theres no ground below us,
don't look down now
