Drop me out of the sky and let me swim into the future If there's one at all I'd rather not Drag me up into the stars and let me pick another planet Name it Oblivion, Oblivion The world is ending and I feel nothing I feel nothing But consumed by the atmosphere Pray for me as I burn and christen me so I'm the Mother It's all I want to kill the Son Bound my body to this ship and dare to leave me at the altar I'll keep my vow I'm ready now The world is ending and I feel nothing I feel nothing But consumed by the atmosphere I'm consumed by the atmosphere My greatest fear It's swallowing me alive (And I can't breathe) The world is ending and I feel nothing I feel nothing But consumed by the atmosphere The world is ending and I feel nothing I feel nothing But consumed by my greatest fear The world is ending and I'm so happy I'm so happy I'm so happy The world is ending and I'm still in it I'm still pitted Calvinistic Pessimistic Pacifistic Self-destruct it

Goodbye moon I'll see you soon When Venice sinks and hell's in bloom What do you feel you men of steel When nothing hurts and nothing's real You can't ghost me I'm already gone Hello fire my indelible sire You gave me life, exposed the liars But bound by rage, a flame in a cage And there's no one listening in your old age You can't ghost me I'm already gone And I know this love of ours will be the death of you It'll beat and ravage you and pick at your bones But there's nothing I can say and nothing I can do I know it's the best for you to burn all alone Walk home on your own

You say I'm sad I say you're boring So sick to death of the same old story You say I'm sad I say you're corny You play with guns I play with Barbies You got the fear got the fear got the fear of a female planet You got the fear got the fear got the fear of a female planet I see the tears see the tears see the tears on your leather jacket Yeah fuck your fear fuck your fear fuck your fear of a female planet Sadfluid.... Sadfluid.... Sadfluid.... You say I'm gay I say you're boring You hate yourself because you're horny You're so confused because you adore me Don't kill yourself it's hunky dory You got the fear got the fear got the fear of a female planet You got the fear got the fear got the fear of a female planet I see the tears see the tears see the tears on your lame-ass jacket Yeah fuck your fear fuck your fear fuck your fear Cause it's not your planet Sadfluid.... Sadfluid.... Sadfluid....

Seamstress glows like the moon when she smiles No one Can lie to the twinkling stars in her eyes, but they try and turn the tides oh how they try She turns to me and says Don't go Don't stay I know... I’m far away Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not Seamstress sew with your lamp turned down low Make pretty dresses in an afterglow sew black satin bright Red lips and bloody finger tips She turns to me and says Don't go Don't stay I know... I’m far away Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not Things that were lost, black dress striped socks Words that I missed came from the tip of your tongue Sleep that was lost in early morning light She turns to me and says Don't go Don't stay I know... I’m far away Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not Maybe you’re right Maybe I'm not We know it won’t be long (I can't laugh at the TV none of it connects with me) We know we don’t belong (I listen to soulless sound I can dance to anything) We know it won’t be long (I'm alone no one can know I'm committed to a ghost) We know we don’t belong (I'm the one it loves the most I'm the one it loves the most) Say Goodnight to the sun (I taught myself how to cry for the people still alive) Say Goodnight to the sun (Yes I've memorized the act I'm prepared for them to die) Say Goodnight to the sun (All I know is what I've seen what I've learned behind a screen) Say Goodnight to the sun (Empty rooms and broken dreams all I've lost is everything)

Baby blue lighter I’ve gotta let you go Black panther fantasies never had it all A blackhole in the sunshine Another story left unseen I’m never going to sleep now You die in every dream... I have... I know you’ll be the voice of a generation It’s not my generation It’s not my generation I saw it when you saw my hesitation It’s not my hesitation I never stood a chance Baby blue lighter it’s time to wake up now Empty all my pockets I’ll get home somehow I’m living in a timeline I see you in a bar You’re the center of attention You don’t know who you are I know you’ll build the greatest architecture The greatest architecture, don’t crumble under pressure I know you’ll build the greatest architecture I never had the texture I never stood a chance I know you’ll be the voice of a generation It’s not my generation It’s not my generation I saw it when you saw my hesitation It’s not my hesitation I never stood a chance It’s not my generation It’s not my generation It’s not my generation It’s not my generation (Go towards the light...)

Authority is animal it’s open season on the crows The father’s son is impotent the family line is discontent Armageddon hurry up the kids have waited long enough Now every day’s another storm I wish that I was never born I’ve got a message for the master race You’re about to be replaced You’re about to be replaced You’re about to be replaced I see the writing in a secret place You’re gonna have to change your face You’re gonna have to change your face You’re gonna have to change your face Sexuality is boring build your houses on my grave The blushing is so nervous the guillotine is serious This future is a fairytale withering before your eyes Your childhood was all a lie The groom should be the one who dies I’ve got a message for the man in charge You’re about to be discharged You’re about to be discharged You’re about to be discharged I see the future for the world at large It's gonna have to fall apart It's gonna have to fall apart It's gonna have to fall apart One of these I promise you The other shoe will drop The end of days will finish you And I will hold the mop I will hold the mop

I said I’d come tonight You said you’d come tonight You know you want this more than you do You know you need this more than you do You spread your fingerprints across the underground There’s no one in your way this carcass of a town Fuck what they have to say There’s no money in this shit anyway And now you’re turning red It’s so calculated... Fuck your stupid everything I don’t care (You’re/I’m such a drama queen) Fuck your stupid everything I don’t care (You’re/I’m in the music scene) You said you’d show up tonight You said you’d show out tonight We know we want this more than we do We know we need this more than we do Where are you coming from you can’t just have my skin Can’t set this scene on fire just for the compliments Who put you up to this? Oh that’s right it was my idea... You’re such a genius, you’re such a spark of whit Fuck your stupid everything I don’t care (You’re/I’m such a drama queen) Fuck your stupid everything I don’t care (You’re/I’m in the music scene) I'm bored now I'm so bored now Seattle is burning... Seattle is burning... me ... Seattle is burning me alive
