lyrics

I was staring at a telescreen, not thinking much about philosophy, getting hella lit by my lonesome tonight. I put on a song that could describe my scene and tried to will my way to ecstasy. The glaze on the donut stole its look from my eyes. I did it till eleven, then I turned off The Lights!

And as I tried and failed to fall asleep, I couldn't stop having epiphanies- making vows to change so i could "better my life", but I was lying in a double bed, and I had no one there to share it with, no one there to tell so I kept it inside.

If you were here, I maybe could have said it and tried it. Now there's no one left that I trust enough to confide in. Now it's so difficult to close my eyes up, so I didn't till I saw the first appearance of The Light.

Then I started reminiscing about all the exciting things I used to do back when I was alive. I would start my day out every morning smiling, seventeen and ignorant and living on an island. Now when I wake up, I need to hold up my eyelids as the sunlight burns right thru my iris. Buzz me in the morning, put me down every night. I'll do it til I'm seventy and turn off The Lights!
