Lyrics
A horizon is a welcome home
Welcome to your unknown throne
Thrown into today
While you were waiting for tomorrow

Deep inside a darkened room
Deep behind you I'm immune
Do you feel exposed?
I feel what's inside of you

The more I watch, the more I learn
If you light yourself on fire
The world will pay to watch you burn

Down to the floor where the taking begins
(The elastic bones of a beautiful sparrow)
Lower than anywhere you've ever been
(John Wayne Gacy runs through the marrow)
This is where I live
The longer you stay here the faster you spin
(Deep behind you I'm immune)
(I see what's inside of you)

The more I watch, the more I learn
If you light yourself on fire
The world will pay to watch you burn

Light yourself on fire
The world will pay to watch you burn

Hundreds line up but none of them have it
After he leaps through a hoop like a rabbit
Burning through devoted
Every mistake is a truth that exploded

I'm awake now, awake... awake
I'm awake now, awake... awake

How does it feel again
When you can't feel anything
And I can't feel anything...
