Lower the lid, give it a kiss.
Anticipating moments like shooting stars.
If singularity is what we are, why is the ending so uniform?
You’re awake to be fulfilled, yet fall asleep half empty, repeat repeal.
If this long sleep is our only guarantee, I will accept it gratefully.

Lower the lid, give it a kiss.
Anticipating moments like shooting stars.
If singularity is what we are, why is the ending so uniform?
You’re awake to be fulfilled, yet fall asleep half empty, repeat repeal.
If this long sleep is our only guarantee, I will accept it gratefully.

I’d give up, just to make this right.
You’d say it’s no use, let the world end tonight.
Let’s burn out fast, so strike a match.
I promise to be your fire, just agree to spread my ash.
The difference is you’re misguided enough to think I‘ll be the one to make it through, but I’ve been too busy soiling my father’s name to recognize this jaded suit.

Lower the lid, give it a kiss.
Anticipating moments like shooting stars.
If singularity is what we are, why is the ending so uniform?
You’re awake to be fulfilled, yet fall asleep half empty, repeat repeal.
If this long sleep is our only guarantee, I will accept it gratefully.

We burn out too quickly, most instants are missed.
We emphasize the sorrow, forgetting all moments are gifts.
We’re not men, we’re just animals that you can’t define.
The glazed eyes mean nothing.
I swear I’m fine.
If knowledge is a gift, faith is a curse.
If ignorance is bliss, we have more than deserved.

IF KNOWLEDGE IS A GIFT, FAITH IS A CURSE! IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS, WE HAVE MORE THAN DESERVED!

Lower the lid, give it a kiss.
Anticipating moments like shooting stars.
If singularity is what we are, why is the ending so uniform?
You’re awake to be fulfilled, yet fall asleep half empty, repeat repeal.
If this long sleep is our only guarantee, I will accept it gratefully.
