If a man at highway speed decides he hates his life
How would a tractor trailer sound at impact
Could you describe the precise shriek
Cut short by popping
What is the time his blackened innards arrive
In a pine box to his parents
Can you explain your answer

Will I lie when tortured
Crack and cry for mother
Curse you father
Must I suffer to deserve your name

This is the part for splitting apart or healing
This is the punch to shatter the heart
The beating of your life
You'll never get to be here twice
This is the pain you cannot contain the bleeding
This is the answer key
Will I be someone that I trusted
Will I be someone that I can trust completely

If I have one dream that's taken away
How many dreams am I left with
And if I want to kill all my friends
When I'm a kilometer away
How many guns will it take
And if I'm 6 feet tall why do I still feel so small
Here beneath the posters on my wall
I swear to God it wasn't supposed to turn out this way

Will I lie when tortured
Crack and cry for mother
Curse you father
Must I suffer to deserve your name

This is the part for splitting apart or healing
This is the punch to shatter the heart
The beating of your life
You'll never get to be here twice
This is the pain you cannot contain the bleeding
This is the answer key
Will I become one of a billion
Will I become a billionth of what I should be
Oh where's my answer key

I don't wanna decide
I don't wanna decide
WE ARE THE SUM TOTAL OF OUR CHOICES
I don't wanna evolve
Can't I just dissolve in apathetic atrophy

This is the part for splitting apart or healing
This is the punch to shatter the heart
The beating of your life
You'll never get to be here twice
This is the pain you cannot contain the bleeding
This is the answer key
Will I become one of a billion
Will I become a billionth of what I should be

This is the part for splitting apart or healing
This is the punch to shatter the heart
The beating of your life
You'll never get to be here twice
This is the pain you cannot contain the bleeding
This is the answer key
Will I become one of a billion
Will I become a billionth of me

Sing with me!
Sing with me!
Sing with me!
Sing with me!
