Imploding Boy
Lyrics

The Show

Imploding Boy

Life is like a goldfish bowl
and you're the guppy
Everyone is waiting for you to be
belly up

All these people look at me
But i don't want their empathy
Most of them will see me
on my proverbial knees

Want to get out --
I'm waiting to explode
But when i look around
There's no where else to go

So you move to another town
To get a brand new start
Jealousy and bickering a worn and practiced art

Stay clear of everyone
If you want no complications
Living in their world
like devious mutations

Want to get out
I'm waiting to explode
But when i look around
There's no where else to go

I am ready to implode

And everyone is staring at me
They don't know that i can see
for miles and miles
A million fucking candles
Until we get snuffed out
I want mine
to burn the brightest
That's what it's all about

Want to get out
I'm waiting to explode
But when i look around
There's no where else to go

I am ready to implode
