We all reach down inside us and pull ourselves out
We're all the way down, it's too far to shout.
The light hurts our eyes the air chafes at our skin
We weren't meant to live amongst these conditions.

I can't see the sky all I hear are the sounds
of this faulty machinery deep in the ground.
Clanking and screaming and grinding it's gears
Eyes on a face laced with sorrow and fear.

He said he'd be here by eight, he's just running late, keep your fucking down.
I swear every night we go through the same shit, are you fucking all right dude?

A head full of voices a gut full of booze
It's starting to feel like I've got ants in my shoes
Dust floats through the sun
The smoke stains our lungs
Remember when this shit was what we'd call fun?

We're not trying anymore
The vastness of space largely goes unexplored
The same as the sea, as with the brain
Stretching forever; little explained.

Still the deafening roar, "I'm frightened to die!"
So make me feel important while we're both still alive.
Still the deafening roar "I'm too scared to die!"
So make me, feel special while we're both still alive.

I can't, I'm out, dude.
I can't I'm done, I'm leaving.
I can't, I'm out, see you later, dude.
