he sees her on the subway
even when he's late,
even when he's early,
as if, for some reason,
the universe delayed her
or hurried her clock
just so he could see her
again that cold winter morning
while he wondered
"will she be there?
it's late..."
...and there she was!

as if the universe
was trying to punish him
for falling in love,
with her,
with every other girl,
this morning,

all of the time,
the blood rushing in,
the sadness settling in,
the never-ending misery
that has been his heart
ever since he saw her
just moments ago.

...and moments ago
turn into days,
turn into weeks,
turn into months
while he hopes,
while he prays,
while he daydreams
it doesn't
turn into years.

he still sees her,
every day,
every morning,
at that precise moment
when she's not there
she has nowhere to go
because she's not there.

but he has to go,
because she's not there.

humanity's greatest treasure

you used to think
that you were the greatest gift
to humanity

and I was a fool,
I was your tool
and believed it blindly

you used to think
that every people's dream was
to be you

and I was a kid
and all that I did,
I did for you

and now
all that you need is gone
and all that I need is done

let us carry on...

every time
you watch the world go blind
you feel like somehow
you shone white light on them

every time
you watch the wold on fire
you feel like somehow
you lit the match on them

and we're here
to watch them kiss
and fill the world
with cursed bliss

'cause we're here
to watch them miss
their opportunity

take the time
to watch the world go down
uncontrollably to the ground

take the time,
c'mon! take yours, take mine,
take it all away
'cause we lost all our control

I've been falling for you over and over (and over) again

I can't sleep tonight,
you see...
I don't regret ever loving you
and I've been lonely
every since you left me
here to wither
until I start to beg for you... treat me like your boyfriend,
call me by his name,
I just wanna be with you,
let me pretend...
