the drenched anomaly

and time after time i walk the line of no return
and time after time i wonder what it’s like to watch the whole world burn
and rhyme after rhyme you’re by my side
and i can never comprehend how you’ve not learned
that much too often, people like me lie

i can only complain that you are not here with me
when did you come to mean so much?
i can only wonder at you and how you care so naively
when did you become such a crutch of mine?
and how do i know? how do i know
that you care so out of proportion
how do i know? how do i know?
well, you were always honest

and thought after thought i wonder how it will end
and thought after thought i wish i didn’t need friends
and rhyme after rhyme you save me from drowning
and i cannot comprehend the love with which
you defend the people like me, the people like me

i can only mutter under my breath in your absense
did you think that i wouldn’t notice? (notice?)
did you
think
that i would not
care?

i am DRENCHED in SPEED
DROWNING IN THE MOMENTUM
can YOU hear ME? can YOU hear ME?
i am DROWNING IN THE MOMENTUM
or are you deaf like i am
you are not alone

i can only SCREAM when you put up with me more than i deserve
i can only SCREAM when there is nothing left to burn
i can only SCREAM
i
CAN ONLY SCREAM

the line of no return.

started to slip today
whatever happened to the days
when tragedy wasn’t just a step away?

staying up too late at night
can’t stop thinking about wrong versus right
don’t fall asleep till the morning light
comes yet again

and the water rises higher
though everything is fine
and i cannot remember
anything worth remembering
at all

i don’t want to be right
i don’t want everything to be fine
make me feel something
before we cross the line of no return
don’t give me that
don’t you say that it’s not too late
do you think that i don’t know myself?
and the world is spinning faster
or maybe it’s just my head
whatever doesn’t kill you makes you wish you were dead
don’t give me that
it is too late after all
do you think that i don’t know myself?

saved me from myself, did you?
did that happen, is this true?
dear sweet boy i wish that i knew

hero for the moment
yeah, that’s what you are
but it won’t be any longer
when you end up leaving scars
(because i know you will)

and the water rises higher
as i am going under
and i cannot remember
anything worth remembering
except maybe your smile

i don’t want to be right
still don’t want everything fine
help me to feel something
before i sink below the line of no return
don’t give me that
don’t you say that it’s not too late
do you actually think that i don’t know myself?
and the world converges above me
or maybe i’m just falling
whatever doesn’t kill you will always leave you sprawling
don’t give me that
don’t you dare say it’s not too late
do you think that i don’t know myself?

close my mouth and shut my eyes
this water will never dry
you will never pry me open again
my dawn will never come again
close my mouth and shut my eyes
you are here to my surprise
close my mouth and shut my eyes
you’ve chose your poison

and the water rises higher
as i am going under
and i can remember
the feel of your hand in mine

the water rises higher
as we are going under
and i can remember something worth recalling
i can remember you
