This doesn't make much sense
Think far out but I'm still locked in
I'm still lost, walking in circles
The floor swallowed me up whole
There's nowhere to go

There's a vulture on my shoulder
And he's telling me to give in
Always hissing right in my ear
Like it's coming from my own head
It's got me mixed up
Trying not to give up
Tell me there's a way to get out of here
Oh, fixed at zero!

I've learned to talk with my fingers
The only voice that wakes my ears
Oh, make my bones do something
Ever wanna jump out of your skin
Anticipating til the sidewalk ends
There's nowhere to go

There's a vulture on my shoulder
And he's telling me to give in
Always hissing right in my ear
Like it's coming from my own head
It's got me mixed up
Trying not to give up
Tell me there's a way to get out of here
Oh, fixed at zero!

There's a vulture on my shoulder
And he's telling me to give in
Always hissing right in my ear
Like it's coming from my own head
It's got me mixed up
Trying not to give up
Tell me there's a way to get out of here
Oh, fixed at zero!
I'm fixed at zero!

    I think its about being lost within yourself. The vulture on my shoulder is someone trying to deceive them from what they really want to do. "im still lost, walking in circles" she cant seem to ind the way out of somethong like her own mind. And the vulture could also be a voice in her head thats holding her back in life which is keeping her fixed at zero.

    Maby it means she can't leave the "vulture" meaning something or someone holding her back. She is fixed at zero, shes stuck on the ground shes being held down?.. Possibly what i think most of this means
