    Lyrics

    Did you want the house, the dog, the white picket fence
    The wife with three kids that helped your life make sense
    The friends, petty trends, the mercedes benz
    Keep the picture on the wall but its all just pretend
    I thought I had it all figured out
    But time's an empty hole and it becomes filled with doubt
    Born a man, hopin to become the boy
    Lived a life, only to be destroyed
    From birth to death, the baby's first steps
    Didn't affect the purest state that we have left
    Best to start slow though pressure becomes past
    The innocence is lost and ignorance grows vast
    It all happens so fast when you're facin to the wind
    You better count the chips before its time to cash em in
    'Cause by then you'll realize that you've lost your drive
    While workin a 9 to 5 until you turn 95
    Sick and tired, know why its time to quench the fire
    While speakin of how you felt you can call yourself retired
    The live wire is dead, left quiet as kept
    It's the birth, the death, the old man's last breath

    (The old man said...this is how it all began)
    It's perverse, from birth to the hearse
    Immersed in a search tryin' to quench our thirst
    If I only learn one thing, its the truth hurts
    It would all make sense livin' life in reverse
    It's perverse, from birth to the hearse
    Immersed in a search tryin' to quench our thirst
    And if I only know one thing, its the truth hurts
    It would all make sense livin' life in reverse

    I am but a reoccurring cycle of light
    Bound to this physical vessel until I reach the afterlife
    And I might escape as my soul is undressed
    I'll fall through all the answers that I saw this time press
    Wait and find a different person staring in the mirror
    Left to pull my life together from the pieces of a stranger's dream
    A vague haze of past days last breath,
    sun sets, same story, new day, next scene
    It's just bickering energy trading places
    More like repeating different names and changing faces
    The soul's eternal but the body soon wasted
    Walk into the new light as the past is slowly faded
    I'm falling from earth, return through rebirth
    Carry body, open wings, a freedom far from all the hurt
    So when my cycle's complete, I'll return to innocence
    With nothing else to guide me but the traces of my inner sense

    It's perverse, from birth to the hearse
    Immersed in a search tryin to quench our thirst
    If I only learn one thing, its the truth hurts
    It would all make sense livin life in reverse
    It's perverse, from birth to the hearse
    Immersed in a search tryin to quench our thirst
    And if I only learn one thing, its the truth hurts
    It would all make sense livin life in reverse
