If you don’t look down
The ground comes up to swallow you whole
But you know where to go
It’s not the place but the people that make the home
Open up your mouth
It’s the pill you never wanted to go down
It’s so tough to swallow
The way your father meant for you to go

Everyone that you love
Is hoping you can find your way home
But don’t know where you are
This house is going down and filled with smoke

Open up your mouth
Your body thanks your lung for their support
It’s too tough to swallow
The smog you choke down, I’m saying something gold

Open up your mouth
It’s the words you never thought would come out
All the words that you swallow
Or nothing but a reason to stay home
I don’t want to grow old
I don’t want to die
But there’s nowhere left to go
Give me a reason to follow
I’m giving in, I’ll follow you home
