Another day turns into night
and I've been inside the whole time
the colors of trees change when they die
and come back to life, but I just die

You're alive, you're alive
don't let it pass you by
we'll miss you, we love you
you will be happy again in time

I didn't mean to hide
I can see myself from the outside
and I know what I'm doing is exactly what I shouldn't do
but it's hardest to change
when you're feeling blue

This was a mistake
and yeah we all die,
it just felt like time
like a decent time to sell high
But succumbing is weak
and ridiculous vices will not abide
all consuming drive
I'm consuming mine
