Alone; Can't you feel it? You've always been alone from the start You're just a pale blue dot on the edge of the universe spinning towards your end at its miserable heart And at your best, what's most pervasive is death at the back of your mind Feel it in the dark flow, heavy and distant, weighing more than all the stars, planets, galaxies, and feelings combined And you can stand back, try to survive It'll only be a slow, eternal, meaningless dive You're already trapped on the inside, surely you can try 'til the day that you die But you'll always be alone Death row; all the atoms in the room have got their guns at the ready And they can't hear you outside if you're already in And all the light inside your body is just a strand of spaghetti Well fine, it'll all be over soon it's just a matter of space time Count all the seconds, close your eyes, hold your breath You'll be alone, alone, alone, alone 'til your death And you can stand back, try to survive It'll only be a slow, eternal, meaningless dive You're already trapped on the inside, surely you can try 'til the day that you die But you'll always be alone Cover your head and prepare for the worst, We've discovered what likely are gamma ray bursts And we've encountered a point where no light can escape Eternally dark and endlessly grave Finished or not, it'll all be destroyed And all of your screams will be lost to the void With no greater agent or force to depend We'll be together with fate and alone in the end

I remember my first time here I walked in and I breathed this scent Into my lungs so deep and entirely I didn't know at the time what it meant And I couldn't process all that I'd seen But it managed to change my life in a day I was alone and in love for the first time; I saw the world in a nervous new way And I could feel the air grow a little bit colder I come here and try not to feel so alone And I tried for the last few years Spent all of this time, but I still don't feel at home And we all don't feel it I just want to be part of something I'd seen And belong somewhere But the world doesn't owe me anything I met some kids at the door who were friendly I learned how to approach people there I met most of their friends and i liked them Even if not even one of them cared And I like the way all the sounds come together And I like the way all the air feels dense I like the ways the walls sweat in the summer This is the only place it ever made sense And I could feel the air grow a little bit colder I come here and try not to feel so alone And I tried for the last few years Spent all of this time, but I still don't feel at home And we all don't feel it I just want to be part of something I'd seen And belong somewhere But the world doesn't owe me anything And I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so I don't feel so

I play out scenarios of how our conversations go And how I tell you all about cryptic symbols I'd decode And you would try to laugh it off and claim you don't know what I mean That you think it's all too much inside my dream within a dream Aromas of a coffee shop inviting me to stay asleep The day is begging of my presence, warning of my lulling sheep And I stay up awake all night and memorize such clever lines Of things I try to say just right but I forgot them in my sleep Maybe I'm just too damned foolish for my own much greater good This girl keeps glancing over at me, I wonder why she even would And if I don't act upon these instinct, I will keep this all to me A dense, distant, old desire, just a dream within a

Is this what it feels like here instead? I've been thinking about you all this time but you're still stuck in my head And it's enough to fill the room I've been feeling something strong inside and I know you feel it, too Half a universe apart Half a universe apart And it's so hard to just resist And to think I've known for all this time that love does not exist Half a universe apart Half a universe apart I'm all alone but it's okay I can see you next to me but you feel so far away Together inside our hearts and we act like it's a choice and you pretend like you don't feel a thing but I can hear it in your voice And it's enough to fill the room I've been feeling something strong inside and I know you feel it, too And maybe we can't change and we're just stuck with how we feel Maybe I keep trying to convince myself it doesn't hurt 'cause it's not real And half a universe apart Half a universe apart Half a universe apart Half a universe apart
