we'll light up the segway
we'll load them up and ship them out
out! out!

tonight this poet dies
it isnt closed spoken
its his last word
his thoughts were left in fiction
and his hope for substance
had faded long ago

you and i both need to know
when we fall, you die, we die
stand there, to get us get us now
if we fall, you die, we die
there out to get us now

tonight the candle was left burning
and a shred of dignity is lost within the flame
his cry for silence had faded long ago

you and i both need to know
when we fall, you die, we die
stand there, to get us get us now
if we fall, you die, we die
there out to get us now

tonight this poet dies
tonight this poet dies
tonight, tonight, tonight

you and i both need to know
if we fall, you die, we die
stand there out, to get us get us now
if we fall you die, we die

we'll light up the segway
we'll load them up and ship them out
out! out!

    "tonight this poet dies
    his inkwell has spoken its last word
    his thoughts were lost in friction"

    also:
    " you and i both need to know
    that they're out to get us get us now
    you bleed for, you die for,
    we felt this so headstrong"

    theres also a line missing after flame
    "his fears were left unmentioned"
