[Vinyl version only]

I'm getting closer, [4x]
All the time,
I'm getting closer,
All the time,
I'm getting closer, [2x]
All the time,
I'm getting closer, [5x]

I tried to get so high,
I made it 10 miles high,
I'm gonna get so high,

My nightmare's everywhere but inside, a living indication of every situation.
But it seems I've got neglected complications, hindered my salvation.
But I try, and I try, and I try...

I'm gonna get so high,
You'll never get inside,
I swore I'd never turn into you,
I'm closer all the time,
I made it 10 miles high,
If you're not truthfull I'm not a lie,
I swore to god I would never turn into you,
I'm getting closer,
All the time.

Tear it all down.
