Let's jump from five story windows holding tight to black garbage bags
Let's stare in the face of all physics deny the laws and turn our backs
Capture and cage all the fire that engulfs entire forests
Bottle and swallow it down until it fuels every inch of our chests
You'll know the speed with which we live

Yesterday was a half empty glass filled with a curious substance I should
Have left alone on the shelf inside the parts of myself that I avoid
Woke up today with the sunrise through the blinds and an ocean between where I stood
Just a few hours before I ran and I ignored the world

I'll live in the picture on the wall in the moment that never exists
I'll be in the day dream that repeats a scene that I always forget
Walking the streets of the city at night feeling warm in my coat
My legs will never grow tired the roads will never lead me home
I'll always feel safer alone

Last night I dreamt of gasoline
Of leaping off of everything
With the hope that this mountain would move
From the air in my lungs
Today I woke desiring
To leave these metaphors and similes
And I would scream aloud

    General CommentThis is the last part, including the missing lines:

    Last night I dreamt of gasoline
    And leaping off of everything
    In the hopes that this mountain would move
    From the air in my lungs
    And today I woke desiring
    To leave these metaphors and similes
    And I would scream aloud
    I'll take the world for all that it's worth
    And I would mean every action I made
    And live every word.
