*Note*: this song has some really tricky lyrics, but I committed some time to it and an 99% sure they are all correct.

[the lyrics start now:]

I drive, I drive into Hellview
He comes to me and says, “You look bad.”
The jewel is in your hand, situations are hopeless
I gotta find a way, now I’m finding a way
Back into the hearts, the living legends
And I can find my dreams, now I’m taking them back
And turning them to gold, I’m a lucky guy
Don’t befriend a man my size, say, you look bad

I can’t be alive
Take me back to your planet
And show me how you live your life
Now I soar through empty space
When grabbing on, don’t cut yourself

The cries, let out in the open,
Don’t gratify their hides. Ain’t that sad?
Spoiled as it seems, nothing is there when
The “under-guy” confides, and it’s not so sad

At least I’m alive
Take me back to your planet
And show me how you live your life
I’ve had enough of empty space
Goodbye, thank you for the ride

So take me back to your planet
So show me how to live my life
Adapting to the atmosphere
Turn around, there’s no one there
Putting all in what you call
The engine fueled by decency
You can’t put squares in circle holes
If I mess up don’t blame me

There’s nothing right.
There’s nothing wrong.

Lives, fading away
To satisfy the heights, and taking them back
To kill a man, agreeing nothing is there when
The “under-guy” confides…
I’m alive.
