lyrics

A dream ago
I floated through your home
And I almost could remember who I was
The picture frames
Although the faces may have changed
Still hang crooked on your cold vanilla walls.

My mind recalled a day back in the fall
Back when I was only 17
My heart had burned
With corners left unturned
And summers that made candy out of weeds.

This is none of your concern
Sit back and watch my heavens burn.

Then I awoke
In a body I didn't know
Although I knew somehow that it belonged to me
I cried, I called
For anyone at all
Then descended down the stairs for my routine.

I'm in the zone
I'm a lost suburban drone
I'm a cause without effect without a time
And I had known you was crooked to the bone
Although I never felt the need to change my mind.


This is none of your concern
Sit back and watch my heavens burn
This is none of your concern
Sit back and watch my heavens burn.


This is none of your concern
Sit back and watch my heavens burn
This is none of your concern
Sit back and watch my heavens burn
Sit back and watch my heavens burn
Sit back and watch my heavens burn.
