Having grown so accustomed to chatter
Once silence struck
I knew not what to say
Please don't get closer
I'm allergic to the exposure
But I want you here
Haven't made up my mind
About this feeling; I'm uneasy
I dream of a crash
I see the shrapnel fly
But haven't found the cause

The images are so loud, they're haunting

Can I ask myself am I awake
And what are my symptoms
I hear the fan blade spinning
Blowing my thoughts away
With no clouds left in sight
Where is this rain coming from

A storm brewing inside
Imperfections take shape
Who let them out?
Admitting I'm better without?
I was trapped freedom came with a cost
Hunt to ascend to a level beyond
Beyond your flask

I was never normal to start
Streets are lined with what used to be
The inhabitants of the land
Whose lives sacrificed
and left behind
Voices that won't give up

A life in confinement
Was the cause for such misbehavior
Extraterrestrial. Shut up and listen
My words are meant to trick you
No one wind me down
I don't need praise
The mirror's fine

Setting out to destroy
The inferior abundance of shallow hearts
How do I measure my greatness
With no one alive to compare?
Making history has been
An unwanted addition to my list of deeds
Admire the statues erected of me
