lyrics

Found a way to put it all in a vault
The keeper told me I could live and never get old
I see you laying in the bed, your arm in a vine
I know you’ll wither like the winter; the spring could be mine!

And now swerving down the coaster, years going down
All the highs are only hind sights, graves in the ground
And I cruise along the ocean, gasp in the breeze
Every dream I’m drowning, his eyes all I see

Threw the medication overboard
Jumped into the sea and swam to the shore
I saw you on the edge you extended your hand
And led me to the land and said
“What are you waiting for, time is an open door
You could be almost gone, you could be so much more”
I could be dead, a skeleton in the shed (Ah, ah)
My daughters checking the will but only finding the bill (Ah, ah)

Shadows casting down on an open sky
You aren't far behind!
I cup my hands chalice but the water dries

Ahhhhhhhh….
Ahhhhhhhh….

Trains in the midnight, buses board in the day
I hear the children role call, I hear them laugh as they play
And all the sirens around, come to think it’s the same
I’ve come to think it’s my head, I think I might know the way…

Temples of stone, caverns of youth
I found the fountain in the city was already used
And now shuttles to the last one, I could be the first one (Ah, ah)
Shut all of the latches, green lights on the dashboard (Ah, ah)

Galaxies ahead and I’ll never die
People told me different, I know it’s a lie
Open my eyes, finally I see

Ahhhhhhhh….
Ahhhhhhhh….

You could be the mecha
I could be the bleeder
We could live forever
Follower and leader

You could be the mecha
I could be the bleeder
We could live forever
Follower and leader!

You could be the mecha (Ah)
I could be the bleeder (Ah)
We could live forever (Ah)
Follower and leader (Ah)

You could be the mecha (Ah)
I could be the bleeder (Ah)
We could live forever (Ah)
Follower and leader!

Live and learn
Learn to die
Mortal skin
Mortal time
What I saw
Bit off my head
I’ll never had a clue what I missed out in
Sentiment
Something warm
I feel the rush
When I was born
Life is all
Ace and spade
Mine to give
Yours to take

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
