Every breath I take, I take a step back and realize that every breath that I've taken so far has probably been meaningless.
Every step I take, I take a breath and wait, take baby steps. It's probably all that I can take, to make mistakes, to mistake the stakes.
Every day I think a day will come where thinking daily comes as natural as greed or breeding. Heed the warnings of this breathless boy.

I lie awake at night and look at the stars.
even though I'm among them, they seem so far.
I know I'd get there if I only try,
But I'll just lay here and wonder why.

We're just machines processing collected data
But only that which only senses can perceive
It's just the two of us until the world is through with us
In this new version of you and me (we're not supposed to know)

I lay awake at night and look at the stars,
But now they just point me to where you are.
I know I'd get there if I only tried,
And I know now I'll be there, right by your side

Deep in the city, where the girl resides
She's amongst a many heartless drunken lies
Deep in the city, where I now call my home
She's amongst a many senseless broken clones

To the little girl deep in the city
I hope that I can find you again
You opened doors that I had sealed closed
And gave me a means to my end
