I’ve got axes to grind,
I’ve got vows to break.
Got my face in the sink, my mind on the blink.

Time travel,
I’m talking to you.
Need you to shepherd me through
and tell me your kind of truth, it’s always that good truth.

burning me out,
letting me down
the slowest they can.

They surrender.
Gravity kills.
Entropy’s in
and it’s gonna win.

Lift off and live again,
soldier of wholesome.
They look so stupid when
they think you’re lonesome.

I gave me shelter when
I saw myself fall
down that rusty hole
in someday's basement.

Lift off and live again,
soldier of wholesome.
