It's the last night
Of your perfect forgettable year
In the half light
You're certain the ending is clear
It's been eating you away
It's so good to hear you say
Goodbye, calendar
Hello, New Year's Day

The words just die
In the fireworks' din
As the passion subsides
And the panic pours in
You try to fly but your Icarus wings
Melt into nothing when you stop believing
You were always so wrong
You got lost in the hallways
Of the always so wrong

Never let them
Realize that you think they're absurd
Just forget them
And the dreams they destroy with a word
You had to get away
You had nothing left to say except
Goodbye, scarlet town
Hello, new world grey

But the past it pulls
On your taut puppet strings
And you're stuck in an opera
Where nobody sings
And you try to fly
But your Icarus wings
Melt into nothing when you stop believing
You were always so wrong
You got lost in the hallways
Of the always so wrong

The words just came my way
That you're leaving here today
Goodbye, wanderer
Hello, camera fade

'Cause the road pulls you
So hard it stings
You just gotta know
What the summer brings
And you'll try to fly
But your Icarus wings will fail you
Like so many things
You were always so wrong
