lyrics

Lets give off
A mystic impression
As I follow you
Down the bridge

Now we’re jumping out
Of school bus windows
Using bags to break our fall

Library
In a sunny daze
But I’m getting lost
In the summer haze

Watch their eyes now
Closer, closer
Radios on
Their minds all gone

But I found the book
In the familiar room
Covered in grey
Paper’s tomb

Then I was caught for being fast
Locked in the room
With the plastic bed
Used my knife to
Crawl out the window
He and I running up the hill

But I never leave school
One way or another
Wake, dead, or dreaming
You’ll find me there
I’m the tool
The void’s my instructor
And it’s not just my imagination

Climb the temple
In the massive space
The steps are people
And I can see his face

Cross the field
Where the children play
Someone’s hurt
But home’s so close

Coming down
It’s morning now
When I fall back in
I hit the ground

So I travel to
The overgrown tower
And hide in the top
Where the night time lasts
The shadows open
The doors and crawl
They act so busy
Can you see them now?

But I never leave school
One way or another
Awake, dead, or dreaming
You’ll find me there
I’m the tool
The void’s my instructor
Everything I learn is from him
And school is a metaphor
