A radical idea
Two worlds are floating in my mind
A void of death is clear
Afraid I'm too slow to survive

Why would I want to quit
I know that it exists
The Light
I'm gonna have to die so I can live in your world

And now that things are clear
More clouds are forming down the line
Another storm is near
I never felt so alive inside

So many ways to die
Don't even have to try
To unplug this machine
When I've already seen
The Light
I'm gonna have to die so I can live in your world

You've got all the answers
I'm no longer in control
Most of me has died away
It's time to dig another grave
No more reason to be brave
It's not too late to save my soul

I'm an atomic bomb
Cuz you don't wanna see me like this

Cuz you're the one with the box
So come on and blow that shit up
