lyrics

If I were any younger I’d be less paranoid
If I were any smarter I’d make more sense
If I were any better I’d be an astronaut
If I were any richer I’d pay the rent
If I were any lonelier
I’d say it in my sleep
If I were any lonelier
So to speak
If I were any lonelier
I’d be your only son
If I were any lonelier
I’d feel like one
I can’t go outside
(why would I go anywhere) (holy holy) (burn it up without anyone’s permission) (keep it to yourself i dont think that i could ever know) (did I require know it I don’t think about everything I can’t do)

Summer majestic with eyes open wide
(keep it to yourself everyone wants you to) (did I require or know it I don’t know) (empty empty) (tear it down with omission) (why would I ever pretend to care?)

I can’t feel my neck
(following footsteps in the aftershock) (holy holy) (ghost of an empty thought) (why should I try to run?) (every time something happens to me)

Distance recovered I am alive here I never meant any disrespect
(following have to walk) (empty empty) (ghost of an empty I can’t talk) (everytime something happens to me) (why should I try to run?)

And in the stars and in the stars
(and in the stars) (holy empty) (and in the stars and in the universe and empty chain) (universal internal truth to me) (holy holy holy)

And in the stars and in the sun
(in the orbit around my sun) (in the orbit to the stars and into star) (star and universe and empty chain) (empty empty)

And in the orbit around the universe
(of the universe) (our universe) (padlock, molten core) (holy holy) (cold space cold light) (holy holy empty)

And in the star I tried to run
(and in the star I tried to run) (cold light cold touching touching me) (holy holy empty) (padlock something more, something more) (empty empty empty) (orbit orbit orbit)

If I were any lonelier
I’d say it in my sleep
If I were any lonelier so to speak
If I were any lonelier
I’d be your only son
If I were any lonelier
I’d feel like one
If
