The lights were low enough, you guessed
You swapped your conscience with your father's medication
Limped from Rome to Lawrenceville
And on the way wrote out a self-made declaration

And when you got to Pleasant Hill
You forced the traffic to erase your family demons
Made a pact with you and God
"If you don't move, I swear to You I'm gonna make you."

Do you need me?
Do you need me?
Do you need me?
Do you need me?

When the first officer arrived
It happened to be the high school bully of your brother
And when you finally recognized
You felt some guilt that you had even let him touch you

"Can you hear me? What's your name?"
You could not speak, just laid amazed at all the damage
As the high school's letting out, all the kids are saying the same things that they used to

It's an alien
It's an alien
It's an alien
It's an alien

The lights were low enough, you guessed
Hospital food, there's never enough medication
The doctor asked about your ears
You said your mom said you were made from revelation
But Revelation never scares
You fear came from your drunken dad and a pair of scissors
Were you just finally letting go?
And did you mean to take out all those people with you?

Didn't mean to
Didn't mean to
Didn't mean to
Didn't mean to

Oh I didn't mean to
(Take the time to terrify the throne)
Didn't mean to
(Never letting go)
Oh I didn't mean to
(Take the time to terrify the throne)
Oh, I didn't mean to
(I'll never let you go)

Time is here to take your last amendments
and believe them on your own

Time is here to take you by the hand
and leave you there alone

Time has come to take the last commandment
and to carve it into stone

Time has come to take you by the hand
and leave you here alone
