lyrics

breaking at the seams
splitting my head with red laser beams

driving way too fast
gave it all I had, then I gave it more
gave all I had, what I had before
gave it all I had then I gave it more gas

on a record day, I will find the words to say
bow and pray until there's nothing that I am
I will simply fade away

on a mountainside, I will drive into the sky
climb so high until there's nothing but blue, blue sky and I
I will fly
I will fly
I will fly

floating lighter than air
if there's something going on out there, I don't care

driving over the edge
too bad the only hammer I have is a
too bad the only hammer I have is a
too bad the only hammer I have is a sledge

on a mountainside, I will drive into the sky
climb so high until there's nothing but blue, blue sky and I
I will fly
I will die
I will fly
fly, fly, fly, fly
