If you’re going to burn yourself down
You may as well have a plan
Your heart, your mind are forever
They may want to make a stand

Change the color of your careless will
Take a walk around outside
The birds they never knew
You let them out to fly

In the eyes of your better self
On behalf of your bequest
It’s better that you have
What you love
And let go of the rest
This big idea of love

The machine misfires all the day
Can’t seem to make it go away
Close your eyes and remember
Where you lost your way

The wave's crashing down on you
Feels like you’re going to drown
What holds you under pressure
Can pick you up, and drag you out

In the eyes of your better self
On behalf of your bequest
It’s better that you have
What you love
And let go of the rest
This big idea of love

This big idea of love
This big idea of love
This big idea of love
