I, I am clearly broken and no one knows what to do
Pieces of the puzzle don't fit, so, I pound them into you
Itching is the pulse inside
Creeping out to come alive
Its just doing what its going to do

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

I can't wait to rip my eyes out and look at you
Peace through pain is precious especially when its done by you
Itching is the pulse inside
Creeping out to come alive
Its just doing what its going to do

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line
And I'm, I'm hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I've left behind

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

Times are looking grim these days
Holding onto everything
Its hard to draw the line
And I'm, I'm hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories of what I've left behind

Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!
Shut the fuck up! Get up!

    General Commentthe narrator is humanity
    seeing how radically broken it is, its hopeless situation
    and deep inside the species, something stirs and starts to come alive

    Can't wait to see in a whole new way,
    and in the middle of all the agony
    is the eye of the storm,
    a calm that can't be touched,

    peace through pain is the most
    radical kind, a sacred surrender

    and the world burns on
    so the narrator holds tighter not to lose the little it thinks it has
    haunted by the past, dragged down by the self importance
    it has to drop to make it to the other side

    - and still, the ole ways hold tighter than ever, ordering to
    keep moving, keep going, don't slow down, don't stop, keep fighting the inevitable
