I crush the world I was in
I'll destroy the world I will find
I'll work the tools with my hands
I'll stick the needles in my eyes

And in my celebrations
You were by my side
And now I'm going down
And through the complications
Something inside me died
And now I'm going down

Bring down the sky with my tears
Dig up the earth with my hands
Take a look inside of my head
And maybe then you could understand

And in my celebrations
You were by my side
And now I'm going down
And through the complications
Something inside me died
And now I'm going down

So long I get my friend back
I guess it's time I should let you know
Well, these things they come around
I guess it's just too hard to let them go
You wait around and while you never
Seem to find that faith in me
You close your eyes and smile
"Forever I will be"
Well, I know the way and I will go
I know the way and I will find
It's all around me and I told you so
All around in here, goodbye

And in my celebrations
You were by my side
And now I'm going down
And through the complications
Something inside me died
And now I'm going down

And all the big decisions we never could decide
And now I'm going down
And in my celebrations
You were by my side
And now I'm going down
