I saw a desert suicide, it didn't turn out how you'd like, no one stepped in and stopped it. I screamed bloody murder mouth, but the words that I found they were wretched and broken. But all the birds that travel south they'll start to pick your ins and outs They'll take you to places. Some a million miles away on a park bench or a crane. You'll have been there at least once.

I don't think our eyes are meant to open, because to see the world and know we'll die must mean the world is broken. I don't think the tragedy is worth it, because to build a life and watch it die means we were never perfect. It don't sit right with me. We were never meant to see.

I watched the homeless in the street, bundled trash to collect heat. It's a good way to stay dry. I found a troubled man in need just begging to be free and he escaped the hard way. I broke a thousand brittle bones just to get back to my home just to turn back, I can't stay. I touched miles of crooked trees just to end up at the creek but it's not here, it's just dust.

I don't think our eyes are meant to open, because to see the world and know we'll die must mean the world is broken. I don't think the tragedy is worth it, because to build a life and watch it die means we were never perfect. It don't sit right with me. We were never meant to see.

I heard a howling, holy ghost and a drunken staggered host kicked us all out, you can't stay. Let the cloud stay where they're hung, low enough beneath the sun. So we can see how this all ends.

I don't think our eyes are meant to open, because to see the world and know we'll die must mean the world is broken. I don't think the tragedy is worth it, because to build a life and watch it die means we were never perfect. It don't sit right with me. We were never meant to see.
