Innocence - The Airborne Toxic Event

I want to disappear
I'd just sleep all day
These spots on my hand
My skin just like sand
And the air so cold
I shudder and I can't sing

The carpet on my feet
Sweat stains on the sheets
Cough syrup and drug
Bandages and gauze
The razors dull the water cold against my skin
The radio log is static buzzin' around like tin

In all these empty plans
The ink stains on my hands
And everyone saves
The best words for the grave
Are these weary morning tones
I'll probably save mine too
If heavens just a long road home
Tell me it's true
I'll go too
I'll go too
I'll go too

Well, I lost my innocence today
I could feel her in my bones
My bones, my bones, my bones
My blood, my blood, my blood, my blood

And I woke up, tired, scared and sad
Soaked, drained, I felt so bad
Today, today, today
What you still, you still, you still, you still
Won't you say, you say, you say, you say
What you feel, you feel, you feel, you feel
Which is nothing but hollow feelings, yeah
I could die, I just don't care

And forget happiness, I'm fine
I'll forget everything in time
I swear I didn't know,
You know me, how I can't let go
And we're not gods, we're just hacks
All that life along the cracks
The scars, the siege that breaks
The ugliest scene, the worst mistakes
And everywhere I see her face
Such a beautiful child, such an awful waste
And there's no innocence like hers
Just emptiness and nerves

And this light from the window of my car
She'll never see it, oh my God
I was so surprised, it blew up in my face
Lord, I lost my nerve, oh my God...
Oh my God, oh my... God

And I tear, and I tear, so hard...
And I tear, and I tear, so hard...
And I beg and scream, "I was wrong"
It's over, she's gone
Oh my God
