I have a few things to say
I'll just say what I need to
I have a few years to go
Before I'm floating down the river again

So it appears I'm alive
Hey it's been quite a long time
I've spent a handful of years
Negotiating terms in hospital gowns
If you believe what you read
You'll be dead before night fall
That's why I'm starting again
Without the pages in my head

Do you feel the same?
Trapped beneath the weight of it all

I am attempting to change
After years of destruction
Don't be alarmed I'm still
Stupid, awkward, anxious and a terrible bore
But I'm excited these days
It's the strangest sensation
I only wish I were younger
So I'd have more time to explore

Do you feel the same?
Do you understand?
All the pieces on your skin
Are trapped beneath the weight of it all
Trapped beneath the weight of it all

I have a few things to say
I'll just say what I need to
I have a few years to go
Before I'm floating down the river again

Do you feel the same?
Do you understand?
Every letter in your name
Is trapped beneath the weight of it all
Trapped beneath the weight of it all
Trapped beneath the weight of it all
It all
