Today, I leave the plan behind.
Burning the pages is my new past time.
In some ways, I new it’d come to this.
I’m creating a monster that never should exist.

It's falling down around me and I can feel it from all sides.
It's way too far to walk but I won’t accept a ride.
When you see me laying on the ground it's best to pay no mind.
You don’t want to be around when I use what’s deep inside

of me
on you.
There’s nothing you can do and nothing left that you can say
'cause my mind’s not going to change.

Hey, why are you still here?
I thought I said there’s nothing for you here.
Now wait, I didn’t say to leave,
I just want someone to believe in me.

Leave me out of this dumb charade.
It’s not the point and it’s not what I’m trying not to say.
It’s like all those silent movies: they’re so bleak and so black and white.
It’s like you are the actor and something just doesn’t seem right.

Now I’ve never felt this way.
And somehow I think it’s here to stay.
Change is coming up ahead.
When you plan for change you change the plan instead.

It’s falling all around me and I never will escape.
I never found the answers cause they’re all to far away.
It’s falling all around me and I’m losing all the time.
I try to pay attention but I haven’t got a dime.
It’s falling all around me and I’ve never failed to rhyme,
but today I think is going to be the day I’m going to die.
Its falling all down on me and I’m slipping here I lie
in this state of fading fame that’s falling fading in the sky.
