Sitting across from you
You're head falls to the side
When you hear the suggestion
You're driven from the light
It's the pull of the drawstring
That comes as a surprise
When you're so close to heaven
I'll help you take that dive

I might fall
I might breakdown
But no one
Can outstyle you there

How many thoughts
How many wishes gone dry
When you loosened the grip
And all your demons got by
With a head full of steam
And a singleness of mind
Head straight into the breach
While making the most from little time

What is and what is not
What is and what is not right here
Fades while falling
Shakes off your disguise in real time

Where is the sun?
Has it set?

"Mr. Sun, you do not annihilate or destroy."
Where is the sun?
Has it set?
"Fifteen-hundred billion years from now, you’ll perhaps run out of fuel,
You’ll expire, go wherever good stars go...
We’ll go with you because as you go, we go"

If their thoughts
Can be just like yours
It would be a better place
It would be a comfort to go outdoors

Your words crawling (It's over, it's gone)
Credits sync in time with our eyes (It's over, it's gone)

Faux sun falling
It's ours to burn
Only fair, of course
Where's some? (x4)

I might fall
I might breakdown
But no one
Can outstyle you there

"Say, you've been reading"

    General CommentAnyone know what the sample is from yet. I know its from a movie but I can figure out which one. During their live show in Chicago, they actually played the clip of the movie where the conversation was happening.

    General CommentInstead of "where's some' in the background, I think it is "our sun".
