Don't look down!
Don't look down!
Don't look down!
The ground is closer then you think.

Don't look down!
Don't look down!
Don't look down!
The ground is closer.

You think the smoke in you eyes
Has given you new sight.
You're nothing but a blinded fool,
Consuming everything you crave!

And I don't wanna watch you try to stand when,
The base you choose is the anchor around your neck.

But I know that you won't come up for air,
Devices never stop bringing you low.
As you're waiting on your luck to improve around you,
You stunt the growth with a debt you own,
This life is not your own!

I know you long for love, not this empty life.
You are nothing new, just the same sad person that I knew.
In my darkest days, you were the shade
That I withered underneath.

Being everything to everyone has left you empty inside.
Don't follow your footsteps here,
I will be gone!
Bleh!

Don't follow your footsteps here,
I will be gone!
I am coming to, I start to clean my lungs,
I can taste the dirt that's been sitting on my tongue.
(I can taste the dirt that's been sitting on my tongue.)

But I know that you won't come up for air,
Devices never stop bringing you low.
As you're waiting on your luck to improve around you,
You stunt the growth with a debt you own,
This life is not your own!

I cannot believe
That you would throw throw all away!
I just want my friend back!

I reject your way of life.
After everything I've seen you do,
Why would I live the way you choose?

Why would I live the way you choose?
