I’m coming clean, I’m coming out right
I’m being up front as I can
There is no truth in my cowardice
Nothing there of who I am
Because space is just a metaphor
Science is just a game
And I’m not finding hope in carrying on
I can’t even use my name
There’s an end to all this artifice
An end to all my lies
But I can’t find the strength to power through
To be louder than my cries
Of voyagers and altered parallels
Of a world beyond my mind
I don’t mind, I don’t mind anything
Just let me stay alive
I’ll stay alive

So I climb out of the abstraction
And pull myself into the real
I’m not ready for the abject
Not ready for the feeling
Of the ghost haunting the morning
Next to someone I can’t see
It's nothing new, I guess I’m used to it
Every day a new defeat
And the truth is I’m not anyone
A blank slate to draw upon
Picture yourself in its borders
Leave your mark and then move on
I’m covered up in scribbled art
In bloodied prints and painted scars
And that’s all I’ll have to last me
Til the last shred falls apart

I’ll fall apart
But I’ll make it art
I’ll fall apart
And leave my mark
I’ll fall apart
But I’ll make it art
I’ll fall apart
And leave my mark

So call me anything you want to
I’ll take it with a smile
Degrade and confiscate my everything
Use me as your denial
I know there’s someone else inside
Who just keeps fucking up my life
So I’ll keep moving on in time
And just keep running to stay alive
And say goodnight
