The world's on fire,
But I don't mind.
I've been sitting here alone
Just to pass the time.
It's getting late
And I'm so tired.
Shut the lights and close the door,
Don't save me from the fire.

I'm okay and my anger's gone.
You shook the ground that I stood on.
And I knew it all along.

I am waiting for the end of all things.
We are the means to an ending.
I think that we've reached a fault,
There's no need to talk,
If Im you're afterthought
You are my aftershock.


I'm a mess of chemicals
And things that I don't know.
What am I but skin and bones
And places I have yet to go, woah?
I've been keeping count
Of all the things I've left to learn,
There's so much more to do, so many bridges left to burn.

I am waiting for the end of all things.
And I am the means to an ending.
I think that we've reached a fault,
There's no need to talk,
If Im you're afterthought
You are my aftershock.
