Cut the cord that opens up my jaw
cause all these words are wrong,
I'm out of breath from kicking cans at God
And I said Jesus Christ the nights are much too long,
I'm tired of throwing bodies at the moon
I'm sure I will be caught soon

And then I had this dream I was fast as lightning,
flying in a suitcase over these islands
But this time, my dear, I'm not wakin' up

Get it right this time,
I'm throwing lassos at the sky
Catching moments as big as my eyes,
Intoxicating like, like we're on a gold mine
Get it right this time,
I'm throwing islands at your eyes
That's right you got me practicing lies,
Intoxicating like, like we're on a gold mine

Cut the curtains, fall around my head
Yesterday is dead,
I can't erase the stupid things I did
And I said Jesus Christ the nights are much too strong,
I'm tired of throwing bottles at the sun
I'm sure we won't be here long

And then I had this dream I was fast as lightning,
flying in a suitcase over these islands
But this time, my dear, I'm not wakin' up

Get it right this time,
I'm throwing lassos at the sky
Catching moments as big as my eyes,
Intoxicating like, like we're on a gold mine
Get it right this time, I'm throwing islands at your eyes
That's right you got me practicing lies,
Intoxicating like

And lately iIve been thinking about the molecules I've been breathing
and now my skins so soft it breaks with every breath I'm taking
and now my blood is full of airplanes and they're flying me away
From all these god damn dirt bag neighborhoods,
saying don't look back, don't you dare look back at me

All right this time,
we're throwing models at the sun
won't be here for too long
intoxicating like, intoxicating
get it right this time,
I'm throwing islands at your eyes
that's right, you got me practicing lies
intoxicating like, like my love
get it right this time,
I'm throwing lassos at the sky
catching moments as big as my eyes
intoxicating
don't look back, don't you dare look back now
get it right this time,
I'm throwing islands at your eyes
that's right, you got me practicing lies
intoxicating like, like we're on a gold mine

    General CommentI think these lyrics are mostly correct. However, in the first two lines of the song it sounds like he says "cut the cord that opens up my jaw 'cause all these words are wrong". Also, another correction I see (which was probably just an accidental mistake on your part) is this line, it should say "I can't erase the stupid things I did" And for the last major portion of the song (seems like I'm just nitpicking at this point, sorry lol)

    All right this time,
    we're throwing models at the sun
    won't be here for too long
    intoxicating like, intoxicating
    get it right this time,
    I'm throwing islands at your eyes
    that's right, you got me practicing lies
    intoxicating like, like my love
    get it right this time,
    I'm throwing lassos at the sky
    catching moments as big as my eyes
    intoxicating
    don't look back, don't you dare look back now
    get it right this time,
    I'm throwing islands at your eyes
    that's right, you got me practicing lies
    intoxicating like, like we're on a gold mine
