Oh, How The Mighty Have Fallen

I?m having trouble breathing
And if I don?t think fast
I?m likely to find myself here for good
Panic sets in as I start to question
Why I see you standing there beyond the glass
Who said that we never would touch the speed of light?

So far behind me, understanding
Stars become rivers flowing backwards, oh yea!
When did my heartbeat start to echo?
Why are my thoughts now fading, drifting, yea!
Twisting, yea! Tearing, yea! Bleeding, yea!
Excuse me, are you a maniac?
I am and I?m okay with that

My moon, my stars
One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything
I?m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything

An endless maze, a mobiüs labyrinth
Exodus, redemption, where have you gone!
And yet your gaze will not cease to burn into me!
So far removed, so mockingly you observe
Pariah, hypocrite! I will be free!
And yet you will remain
Excuse me, are you a maniac?
I am and I?m okay with that
My moon, my stars

One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything
I?m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything

No!
Futile screams go unheard
Incarcerated by so many walls
No!
Imprisoned and banished
Within a nexus of my own design
Don?t go back, don?t leave me
Hide from the world, let?s not exist
Please God kill me!

Time is mocking me
And now I?m fighting gravity, yea
I?m destroying me
Colliding worlds will set you free
A straight line is not the shortest
Distance between two points!
I know that now! But I?m afraid it might be too late!
Will we come back from this?

Hold my hand, I?m blind!
Show me how, I?m lost!
My God it?s beautiful
The portal opens, time is slowing, no turning back now, ?bel
My moon, my stars
One last night, one final kiss
Desire begging me not to go
Goodbye my everything

I?m terrified, I pull you near
Making sure that you are real
Open my eyes, it was all a dream
Goodbye my everything, goodbye my everything
No!
Futile screams go unheard
Incarcerated by so many walls
No!
