A blackout in the room again,
A busted lip and broken skin.
I wake up in the bathroom
And dare not bother asking
Why the mirror's craked and all I see
Are shards of glass inside of me.

There's voices there to dare me,
My father's here to scare me.
My mother sits beyond the door she's
Curled up crying on the floor,
Look at what her son's done.

When the weight of all the world's gone wrong.
Wrong again.
Gone fucking wrong again.

Well liars, they leave a guilty trail.
Let me tell you, I've been lying for years.
That must be why I'm standing in this space.
Constantly, over and over.
I'm disregarding that I have created these monsters
That are on both of my sides.
So I wipe the blood from both of their eyes.
From all four of their eyes.

And while I wait for wounds to heal
I see you by the window sill,
Your heart's torn out,
A plastic spoon.
When honesty lit up that room.
So I stole the pillowcase to clean
This mess I've made of someones dream.
Now you've seen what I've done,

When the weight of all the world's gone wrong again
Gone fucking wrong again.

God, this room is old and wise
And I fall onto the bed and wonder,
"How did I get here?"
I was a little boy who would argue with a tree.
Go ahead, thump his head.
He'll turn back to normal.

Now why is that what I see?
Don't bother trusting me.
Don't bother waiting.
Don't bother changing things that won't give into changing.
Just let me go away.
I'm packed.
Down,
Whenever.
Let's go.
Let's really, really go.
