Page one, line one, focus in on the subject Pick another new year and call me someone else My horoscope is a horror show And it's like I'm living in the undertow It's been too long for me to tell So someone call me and tell me I'll be okay Someday Pick a number, choose a name And tell me who I am today I am burning bright like a distant star I am flaming out like a voyager So we can't see the end of the world If we get that far tonight The war is never over so long as we fight The light at the end of the tunnel Is the rest of the world burning Just know I love you, friend I'm still waiting here, still calling a truce Because I want to feel like I'm making a difference And not just killing time til the end So I'm closing off my better days Saying one last toast to my old ways And greeting the dawn with another face Is that a promise or a threat these days I am burning bright like a distant star I am flaming out like a voyager So we can't see the end of the world If we get that far tonight The war is never over so long as we fight All I have is my words And they won't ever be enough I can change what I am, take a different name Try out a new face, take a share of the blame We're not fighting for our place in line And if it's not ours then it's time Burning bright like a distant star I am flaming out like a voyager So we can't see the end of the world If we get that far tonight The war is never over so long as we fight

Weight 04:55
Up at 5:07 Getting older in my own head No one can fix you, to find your way back So I can smile I can't find my way home We were 4 years old We were kids, we were so still The fire is dying and straying along in our lives What a night It's not time, what a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine All of the weight of it for tonight Take your pictures down I sometimes wonder why I keep them around Wait for a moment For something to hide my eyes What a lie It's not time, what a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine We can imagine it Time is taking its toll on me And I can't find my way back to the Night we met Night we said All the things we've forgotten again If it's you or me tonight It's not time, what a lie We can tell ourselves Finding a way back home Tell me a lie That we're all fine If we can imagine We can imagine it That we're alive That I'm alive That you're alive That we're alive And all I have is tonight We were 4 years old Once we had it all Now just the weight is left
