How do you murder a dream?
Wrap your long fingers around its small throat
Watch the light fade away
While it's trying to scream
Say "I brought you into this world and I will take you out of it!"

How you do see the moon
and accept that it's too far away?
It's enough work just climbing the mountains
We can't all be astronauts

And the angels in my head say
"Baby, just stick to your singing. These tantrums get old"

But I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I'm done

How do you silence a song
when its one single purpose is just to be heard?
Can I just let it sing?
No
No that's far too risky a thing
when the message is such childish blasphemy

Truth
How do you just accept
that it's got to be strangled to death?

And the angels in my head say
"Baby, that's quite enough singing. Try silence instead"

But I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I'm done

There's a bright little light in the line of my vision
It's blocking my view and I can't see the night
The black holes in my skull dilated to crushing the irises
Crowding too close to the white

And there's nothing more beautiful
No, there's nothing more beautiful

And the angels in my head say
"Baby, just let it go...."
"Let it go..."

But I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have

I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have
I want what I can't have

I'm done
