I'm on a suicide drive off the high dive I know the fastest way, but I like the ride I guess I lost my love for a certain lust And now I'm sitting around just collecting dust I've had the hardest time I've ever had Trying to blow your mind and get ahead I like to make excuses, but I just gave up And this lament has lasted long enough This is the last wave This is the last wave I'm on the last wave This last wave So here I stand and face the pain It's been a long hard life, but not in vain I thought I might have made the perfect mess But have you met my best friend, loneliness? I'd like to say I know it all I've done it all And now I've hit a wall But the things you've seen you can't unsee And what happens next is what was meant to be This is the last wave This is the last wave I'm on the last wave This last wave

I'll be here Mostly cuz where would I go Just so you know That we could be alone Kill ourselves at the sight of dawn You're in space Cuz other planets need saved Come on give me a taste And we can all escape I'll help you when you need to explain I'm only asking you because you know everything All of the time you think we have Do our dreams just get in the way And what about lonely Why do we get so lonely Yeah lonely, why do we get so lonely Until I don't even care I need you close Cut me before I explode Or just leave me a note It needn't be verbose Just tell me that you like me the most I'll disappear If things between us get weird and fall asleep for a year Or drink away the tears Pilot to bombardier I'm only asking you because you know everything All of the time you think we have Do our dreams just get in the way And what about lonely Why do we get so lonely Yeah lonely, why do we get so lonely Until I don't even care

Do you you ever think of me? The truth is that I think too much about you I’m not sure what I feel is love But before we met I wasn't feeling anything at all This isn't something you would deem forgettable And I’m not someone easily replaceable If I could only show you something so remarkable That you'd want me for me You always said I talk too much Maybe I never learned to say the right things I think you used me as a crutch To hold you up when you couldn't bear to see the light of day This isn't something you would deem forgettable And I’m not someone easily replaceable Has this life become totally unbearable? Let me show you something totally remarkable That you'd love me for me

Do you see someone you can save As we vanish in the haze Was it easy to get me to talk While my half life slows the clock See I once was in love And it wasn’t enough I once was in love What have I done Do you have the time to kill Perhaps dying’s more your thrill Among the particles and waves I’ll be drinking your mistakes See I once was in love And it wasn’t enough I once was in love What have I done

I watched you fall out I feel so happy I'm pretending to cry Like you don't notice Like you don’t see What's going on in my eyes Advanced through beginners Illusions done with mirrors A complete new design If you could lose your skin Then we could be in business We could be, all the time It's not important Come on and skip me When you say your goodbyes Cuz now I'm loaded Now I'm someone getting on with his life Advanced through beginners Illusions done with mirrors A complete new design If you could lose your skin Then we could be in business We could be, all the time

Two smart kids doing dumb things Destined for worse We’re just two love birds And we're never gonna shake this curse Oh no Long, hard years And we're never gonna win this fight We just kept on holding on hope because we thought we might, honey Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you’re gone Tell me just once if you think there's a cure for blue, darling Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum Baby, I think we're Two dead hearts Grown apart Never know when to quit We’re just two hot heads And we never learned to cool it One last try Just to see if we can be polite We gave one last try But it only lasted for one night But what a night Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you're gone Tell me just once if you think there's a cure for blue, darling Tell me one time why you think I’ll just wait for you ‘til you’re gone Tell me out loud how we're ever gonna make this new Once more, with feeling

I’m running in slow motion forward I’m heavy, but still on my feet I’m tired, I’m sick, and I’m lonely Come catch me It won't take you long I’m falling in slow motion forward My status, my ego in tow I’ve had time to think how I got here It’s too late to change trajectory Oh no I’m flying in slow motion forward I’m lofty, but steady as she goes My shadow, it covers you completely I see you Don’t miss me Don’t go I’m diving in slow motion forward I’m coming in straight for you, please It seems like I’ve floated forever I love you and hope that you know
8.
Suicide wasn't always lame But you got over yourself anyway On a speedboat far away Going cheap because you drink It's gonna seem the same again We'll pretend that we're still friends But don't defend your past to them How you're here because they missed I felt a war had started With less to care about All the warmest hearts hid far beyond the stars I'm always sorry Always self obsessed Making it up giving your best guess I didn't think you'd come this far west But that doesn't mean anything I fall in love with all my mistakes You like the versions that got nothing to say So if it pleases your majesty, just leave me here to sleep I felt a war had started With less to care about All the warmest hearts hid far beyond the stars
