I’m losing my edge
Everything starts to make too much sense
I’ve got my eyes on the apex
Forget all the checkpoints I’m not supposed to forget

I’m losing the flavor
The ironic taste of blood in my mouth
I wanna call for the head of my leaders
I miss being what everyone’s worried about

And I’m not sure I shouldn’t want
Whatever’s happening to me
Like a hit full of menthol, I think I might need it to breathe

All the boys will be boys
I’m old enough now that I guess I accept it
Don’t forget where you’ve come from, boy
Don’t forget when you learned that everything is connected

I’m losing my footing
Potential energy falling to more comfortable states
A squandered projection
Sometimes I wonder if I even deserve to change

Put your damn foot down, make your mom proud
And act like you’ve got something to lose
If I get to heaven, I’d rather show up black and blue

So scatter my ashes across as many states
as you can afford to drive
I want to be some devilish mist on the horizon,
I want to be a black cloud haunting the sky
Let all the ghosts crawl down my throat
Let me dissolve into a thick smoke
As I burn alive


from Where I'm Gonna Die, released June 30, 2015
