And I wait for another time And I wait for another sign And I wait for the better life you chose Cos I'm sick of being stuck in fits And I'm sick of being fucking sick And I'm sick of everything but I guess that's how it goes So I sit and think of what's inside And I sit and sing all I have to hide And I sit and wonder what I've yet to learn Cos I'm not what people think I am And I'm not anything that I can stand And I'm not waiting for the end to let it burn I am standing in my bedroom Looking in the mirror, at a broken frame And if we're being honest I'm afraid of what I'll hear And I am standing in my bedroom With nothing left on but my name I can't lose much more than I already have this year I watched the shuttle fall and break apart I was six years old and it broke my heart Not that I'm older (Not that I'm older) Now that I'm older I don't give a fuck about anything I watched the shuttle fall and break apart I was six years old and it broke my heart Not that I'm older (Not that I'm older) Now that I'm older I don't give a fuck about anything I watched the shuttle fall and break apart I was six years old and it broke my heart Not that I'm older (Not that I'm older) Now that I'm older I don't give a fuck about anything I watched the shuttle fall and break apart I was six years old and it broke my heart Not that I'm older (Not that I'm older) Now that I'm older I don't give a fuck about anything I watched the shuttle fall and break apart I was six years old and it broke my heart And the trick is just to keep from breaking now

There's something rotting In the pit of my stomach And it's waiting for something to break out through my skin I don't think I am able To bring to much to the table I just keep my voice down and try to keep it in Keep everything in There's nothing waiting No more worlds in the making Nothing better than me Nothing stronger than all that we are So I keep myself silent So much for being defiant I just keep drifting while everything's falling apart We're falling apart And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance so I Trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I began So draw the circle tight And disappear These hospital dreams Break me down at the seams All my guns are raised And horror's down below again Time stays and sticks around So I go back underground In the hopes the sun might peek below the horizon Another horizon And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance so I Trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I began So draw the circle tight And disappear Just stand up straighter Sing even louder Nothing can touch you If you don't believe it's real Just stand up straighter Sing even louder Nothing can touch you If you don't believe it's real If you don't believe you're real And I don't think I've found the science To live up to my defiance so I Trip over my tongue And fall back into my bad habits I run and try and try again Just to end up back where I began So draw the circle tight And disappear Draw the circle tight And disappear Draw the circle tight And disappear
