I talk to you all the time
The world thinks I'm
Crazy as crazy is
And I don't feel much different
Fluorescent lights hum
Their incessant anthem

Everything I believe
And everything that holds me together at the seams
Seems so far away from here
And we're all wandering
Where're we going
And I wish my colors weren't so faded
And I wish I didn't feel so cold
Everyone's so slow and jaded
Falling asleep to this Midwestern drone

I think about running everyday away from this life I've made
Built to last a little too long, feeling trapped under my own weight
Too heavy now to stand, let alone fly
And I'm always watching the sky with jealous eyes
Wish I'd finally fall apart
Do something desperate to change things
Changed my mind again
Just when I was getting brave

Somewhere over this city
High above the red brick chimneys
I know we can escape this
It feels like fighting gravity
