Believe the news, I'm gone for good
Call off the search, no one will know that I'm down here
Believe the note I left for you
You can't turn back the clocks, in a car underwater with time to kill

Make time slower, give me longer
It's too late for me, no one will know that I'm down here
And believe your dreams of me sinking
So far, below, you can't pull me up from here so don't try

Standing at attention
Dreams cascading around you like rushing water
Every pore is filled with hope

In a car underwater with time to kill

(Let me go)

Oh, Icarus tempting fate again
Altitude sickness setting in
Tradewinds bury fire from broken wings into arms below the ocean

(Leave it up to me)
(To burden you again)
(This ones not your…)

Leave it up to me
To burden you again
This ones not your fault
So forget
So forget
So forget
So forget

[Planet Asia Rap]

(Leave it up to me)
(To burden you again)

Leave it up to me
To burden you again
This ones not your fault
So forget
So forget
So forget
So forget

Don't think back, don't think back of me at all
Just let me go
Don't think back, don't think back of me at all
Just let me go
Don't think back, don't think back of me at all (Let me go)
Don't think back, don't think back of me at all (Let me go)
Don't think back, don't think back of me at all (Let me go)

I'm in a car underwater with time to kill,
Thinking back I forgot to tell you this
I didn't care that you left and abandoned me,
What hurts more is I would still die for you

I'm in a car underwater with time to kill,
Thinking back I forgot to tell you this
I didn't care that you left and abandoned me,
What hurts more is I would still die for you
And I would still die for you

    General CommentThe Planet Asia rap is:

    My knowledge is supreme, pushing product to the fiends
    Picking up is way far than waking up
    Out a dream and I'd have see a lot of things,
    From walthiness to robery,
    Righteousness to proverty,
    Now its all to sodomy
    Child of the 70's
    Born for you cherish me
    Degress I drop steady, representing the ebony
    Messages through the melodies
    Heart beating fast like a cut-close felony,
    Cut throats trailing me;
    I'm so original that I'm damn near alien
    The government issues hopping out bullet-proof Mercedes Benzes
    Black mafia
    Cover me guard, rap philosophers
    Screw face the new faces popping up
    My blood line form meteorite to microbe
    Unidentified from out the universal freedom cypher, the God
    Power rain held snow, my thunder starter,
    My mythology is Icarus, underwater
