Didn't feel a drop of rain. Didn't notice all the waves you said you made. Spend all winter in my favorite coat. Time'll trickle out your vain vein veins.

Now every riddle ends the same. Every pebble on the beach is ingrained. Leaving home without your blades. Ride the waves in the deep blue sea without drowning.

If you really want to reach somebody tonight.
Get your blades out, get your blood on the ground.
If your friends think you're wasting your time.
Get your blades out, tell 'em what's going down.
If you really want to, get your blades out.

You ain't gonna hear me roar. Maybe you never played a chess game with me. Ain't how we do it anymore. Baby never learned to masterpiece.

So say they come from outer space. They can say what they want about me, they're leaving home without their blades. Thinking they're the end of everything. Without reason, we're surrounded.
